About This Book
Kim Yu-na Takes Up Writing
Figure skating ace Kim Yu-na will publish a collection of her observations titled "Kim Yu-na's Seven-Minute Drama" on Jan. 28. Pre-sales booking begins on Thursday.
The title refers to the two-minute-50-second short program and the four-minute-10-second free skate combined. Despite being a world figure skating champion, Kim defines herself, "a simple, cool and down-to-earth 20-year-old figure skater who dreams of freedom and a normal life, has blood type O, and eats everything except for things she doesn't like."
The publisher said Kim's candid accounts start from the day she began figure skating at the age of seven to her preparation for the Winter Olympics in Vancouver next month and future hopes. Kim was touted as a child prodigy when she was in elementary school, dominating the field and mastering five types of triple jumps at the age of 12.
However, hardship forced her to consider retiring twice during her teens. The book deals with her attempts to overcoming these obstacles and becoming the world's top figure skater. Kim writes in her own perky way about choosing music and deciding choreography, and describes her emotions before and after the competitions.
She recorded the details in a diary every night after training. Kim's personal motto, according to the book, is "No pain, no gain."
