Figure skating fans here will be enchanted by two queens of the ice next month, as reigning Olympic gold medalist Kim Yu-na will put on an ice show with legendary Michelle Kwan in Korea.
The Vancouver Winter Games champion will perform along with Kwan, the most respected U.S. star, in “All That Skate Summer” scheduled for July 23-25 in Goyang, Gyeonggi Province, near Seoul.
This is the first-ever ice show hosted by All That Sports, the agency established by Kim and her mother in May.
The show will also mark the second time that Kim and Kwan appear on the same ice since last August at the Ice All Stars 2009 in Seoul.
Among the lineup of stars, two Korean female hopefuls, Kwak Min-jung and Kim Hae-jin, are also scheduled to appear. Kwak made an impressive Olympic debut in Vancouver and Kim Hae-jin won this year’s National Figure Skating Championships.
Tickets will go on sale from June 23, with prices and vendors to be announced later this month.
