    8 celebrities, together with national speed skater Lee Kyou Hyuk, will be taking up the challenge of figure skating on SBS programme "Kiss and Cry", also known as Kim Yuna auditions, which is scheduled to begin broadcasting in May. It makes us wonder why they want to embrace this 'Infinite Challenge'.

    Figure skating is a sport that is not easy to even imitate. On the Kim Yuna episode of MBC programme 'Infinite Challenge', everyone could see that it is not easy to follow the fluid motions of a figure skater.

    Nevertheless, each of the 9 challengers have their own reasons for lacing up their skates. Let's take a look at their reasons to stand on this beautiful but cold and heartless ice rink.

    'Since we have some dance experience'

    Son Dambi, f(x)'s Krystal and TVXQ's Yunho are challengers who are good dancers and hope to transfer some of their dance skills from their stage performances onto the ice rink. Being born with athletic genes is something that all of them have in common.

    For IU, romantic ideal of uncle fans, if there is something she is lacking in, it would be her dancing skills. Even though she promoted dance songs such as 'Marshmallow' and 'Good Day', in contrast to her outstanding vocal skills and guitar performance skills, honestly she still lacks dancing experience. "Through figure skating, I would like to put my dance skills to the test," IU expressed as her reason for participating in the show.

    Wow I think I want to watch this show. All star casts and very amusing concept of the show, especially seeing IU ice skating is also a dream. I'm going to wait for the Marshmellow Subs.

    Figure skating looks very difficult, props to IU for giving it a try but let's hope she does not get hurt. And also I'd like to know what system the program will use. If there are going to be eliminatory rounds each week, IU must be at disadvantage because all the other competitors have had a proper training at dance (and thus are more fit) whereas IU will need mor time to adjust.

    Well this will be funny :grin: her lack of dance skills makes for a really cute show, so I wont complain. I actually wonder if she's ever been on skates before

    Anyways thanks for translating squishy

    Haha, I think she can do it.
    I hope she doesn't hurt herself. I've never ice skated before, but I hear falling hurts.

    I'm looking forward to this.

    Thanks for translating ~

    Hope Yuna can give a personal skating lesson to IU! I'm sure she'll do well!
    Totally anticipating IU to do those slow expressive dances. Hope she don't break into her uncontrollable ahjumma laughter while doing those facial expressions! :D
