Smartasses Magazine Top 100 - Female EmpowermentYuna Kim Bio – Smartasses Magazine Kim Yu-Na 김연아 (born September 5, 1990) is a South Korean figure skater. Kim was born in 1990 in Bucheon, Gyeonggi-do, and moved to Gunpo when she was six years old. She became a Roman Catholic in 2008, after wearing a Miraculous Medal on her skating outfit, which she received from a nun during the 2007 World Figure Skating Championships, and being healed by a devout Catholic doctor for severe skating injuries she incurred in 2006-2007. Kim’s Confirmation name is Stella from Stella Maris in Latin, meaning Our Lady, Star of the Sea, an ancient title of The Blessed Virgin Mary.

Kim is one of the most highly recognized athletes and media figures in South Korea. She began skating at the age of five. In 2002, she competed internationally for the first time at the Triglav Trophy in Slovenia, where she won the gold medal in the novice competition. A year later, at age twelve, she won the senior title at the South Korean Championships, becoming the youngest skater ever to win. Kim is the 2010 Olympic champion and 2014 silver medalist in Ladies’ Singles. Among her other awards, she is the 2009 and 2013 World champion, the 2009 Four Continents champion, a three-time Grand Prix Final champion, the 2006 World Junior champion, the 2005 Junior Grand Prix Final champion, and a six-time South Korean national champion. Kim is also the first South Korean figure skater to win a medal at an ISU Junior or Senior Grand Prix event, ISU Championship, and the Olympic Games. Additionally, she is the first female skater to win the Olympic Games, the World Championships, the Four Continents Championships and the Grand Prix Final. Kim broke world record scores eleven times under the ISU Judging System, eight of which being records she set herself. She is also the first female skater to surpass the 140-point and 150-point free skating mark, as well as the 200-point total mark under the ISU Judging System. Throughout her entire career, Kim never finished a competition off the podium. In 2014, Kim announced that the Olympics would mark the end of her competitive skating career. On August 18, 2011, she was named as a Global Ambassador for Special Olympics. In October 2011, she was named as an ambassador for 2012 Winter Youth Olympics in Innsbruck and on August 27, 2015, she was named as an ambassador for 2016 Winter Youth Olympics in Lillehammer. Kim was also named an honorary ambassador for the 2018 Winter Olympics to be held in South Korea.

Kim has also worked in several projects as a singer. She recorded a duet with K-pop singer Lee Seung-gi to collaborate on Smile Boy, the 2010 Football World Cup commercial song. She also sang with the Korean group Big Bang on the single Shouts of Reds created for the Korean World Cup soccer team. Kim has also performed songs by Korean pop singers Taeyeon from Girls’ Generation, IU, Narsha and BoA.

As a result of her numerous accomplishments, Kim is frequently referred to as Queen Yuna. In August 2010, Forbes magazine listed her as one of the highest-paid female athletes in the world, with annual earnings of $9.7 million. As of April 2015, she has donated more than $2.67 million to various charities and organizations.

Why we think she’s hot:

One thing is for sure, Kim Yuna is very used to being put on a pedestal. The only difference is, they refer to it as a podium. Six a’ one. The point is, in some parts of the world, Kim Yuna is revered as a god, and frankly, one doesn’t need to be a master of the triple lutz-triple toe loop combination (like Yuna is) to see why. Therefore, it leaves little wonder as to why she’s a two timer on our gold medal list here as well.
