Weekly Photo Challenge: Sweet

Spanish figure skater Javier Fernandez nails aegyo (애교) in this sweet photo of him receiving the bronze medal at the 2018 Winter Olympics. He definitely has the looks to be a K-pop idol and now the moves, too!

Javier Fernandez making a heart over his head.

There’s more sweets for the sweet at The Daily Post.

Wishes come true: Yuri On Ice at the Olympic Games

cartoon me jumping in ice skatingAll season long I’ve been whining about how I wished Hanyu Yuzuru would skate to Yuri’s short program music, Yuri On Ice, from the anime of that name. And then the Twittersphere delivered this to me today: Suzaki Miu and Kihara Ryuichi skated to music from the Yuri on Ice soundtrack at the Olympics!

How the heck did I miss this all season! (Well, I didn’t watch much pairs skating last year, so there’s that.) I hope more skaters make use of other music from the soundtrack. It’s really good. Here’s Suzaki and Kihara doing their thing at the Four Continents Championship.

 Born to Make History

And bonus, they skated to my favorite polyglot Dean Fujioka’s song Born to Make History, too. I can’t gush about him now. That’s for another post, another day.

 


Japanese skaters have skated to music from my favorite anime about figure skating. I can die a happy woman now.
