If Yuna Kim wrote the history of Korean female figure skating, now Cha Jun-hwan is following her in male figure skating.

“Cha Jun-hwan, I love you!”

The quiet arrival hall has turned into a fan meeting hall토토사이트.

Cha Jun-hwan was delighted with a bouquet of flowers in his hands and a crown on his head.

Cha Jun-hwan, who became the first Korean male athlete to win a silver medal at the world championships held in Japan the day before yesterday, was very popular.

“I think I’m very satisfied because it was a match where I always aim for a medal.”

If Yu-Na Kim is the pioneer of Korean female figure skating, then Cha Jun-Hwan is definitely the male figure skater.

Cha Jun-hwan started figure skating in elementary school after working as a child actor.

Based on his innate expressiveness, he has written the first record in Korea since his junior days.

While battling a hip injury since his senior debut, he has perfected the quadruple jump that is essential for high scores with painstaking training.

Cha Jun-hwan, who gained experience in two Olympics, finally realized his dream of winning a medal at the World Championships this season when his artistry was in full bloom.

Now, the eyes are on the Olympic medal three years from now.

“I think it would be nice if I practiced harder and improved so that I could get closer to my dream (Olympic medal).”

Lee Hae-in, who became the first Korean female athlete to win a medal 10 years after Yuna Kim with a silver medal in women’s singles, was also warmly welcomed.

Korean figure skating, which had been stagnant since Yuna Kim’s retirement, had a second renaissance.
