Yu-Na Kim returns to Korea (with video.) The question is whether or not she will compete at Worlds now that she has a hefty schedule of professional conflicts. She has a show in Korea in early May. They could always reschedule Festa On Ice, but her true desire to compete could be tested. Korea is also supposed to hold a skating reality show that may or may not involve her.
2011 Worlds Updates:
Worlds location will be announced on Friday.
Worlds will be in North America or Europe.
