I’m sure by now many of you who follow figure skating have heard of the Yuna/Brian breakup. It’s strange since it’s only been six months since their amazing triumph in Vancouver, where Yuna set the world record score to win Korea’s first gold medal in figure skating.
Why did they break up…? Who knows? It’s been mostly he said, she said, but I suspect that Yuna’s mom had a part in the entire affair. Regardless, I wish both Yuna and Brian the best.
Anyway in one of his interviews, Brian revealed that Yuna’s new long program will feature Korean folk songs, including “Arirang”. Here’s an orchestral version performed by the KBS Orchestra in Osaka.
P.S. You can listen to another orchestral / choral version here.
