Korea University president says really dumb things about Kim Yu-na

Lee Ki-su, the president of Korea University, has made some really dumb statements about Kim Yu-na, the current world champion of ladies’ figure skating. In case you don’t know, Korea University is Korea’s third most prestigious university, after Seoul National and Yonsei.

“We can say KU delivered Kim,” Lee told a forum at a meeting arranged by Kwanhun Club, a senior journalists’ group in Seoul.”

“Delivered” Kim? She’s a package?

“You can tell Kim made totally different performances from the ones she performed during her high school era.”

Which could be attributed to the fact that she matured and trained hard (overseas, by the way).

“It is a result of the injection of the KU spirit into her. I called and told her a leader in the 21st century should retain an ethnic, pioneering spirit and a conviction for victory.”

What is this even supposed to mean? He injected something into her? That sounds dirty.

And in any case, Kim may end up attending the University of Toronto.


  1. as a Canadian, I’m going to say that Yuna’s success can be credited completely, and only, to Brian Orser and Canada’s influence. All that healthy maple syrup and Canadian bacon and clean Canadian water have obviously pulled her skills together into the total winning machine we see before us. It couldn’t possibly be due to, say, Yu-na’s own hard work and talent.

    • You are obviously too dim witted to understand that it was both a combination of Yuna Kim and Brian Orser’s hard work that lead to a gold medal. You sound like someone who has very limited knowledge on Yuna Kim. No matter how good the coach is, it is up to the athlete to deliver his/her best in an Olympic performance.

      • He’s joking. First, relax. Second, don’t write insults like that again or you’ll be sent to the spam box.

  2. […] sports — extrakorea @ 2:16 pm What a deplorable way to treat an iconic national treasure. Korea University gave Olympic champion figure skater Kim Yu-na two failing grades last year. Why? Because she never […]
