Winter Olympics 2018: South Korean figure skater Yura Min's wardrobe malfunction

12 February 2018

Whether it's the Winter Olympics or Summer Olympics, if you're competing, you would love for everything to go off without a hitch.

"Five seconds into the routine, my hook came undone", Min said, via the Detroit Free Press. But while she didn't look fazed on the ice, the broken clasp still gave the South Korean and United States dual citizen a major scare."I know that if this comes undone, then the whole thing is going to come undone". I was terrified the entire programme.

HollywoodLifers, are you as impressed by how Yura Min handled her Olympic wardrobe malfunction as we are?

They say it takes only seconds to make a first impression.

Although a hook on the back of her dress pulled loose, the figure skater, representing South Korea, managed to carry on with her routine as she performed a series of improvisations, such as pulling her arms back on occasion, while dancing with partner Alexander Gamelin. I didn't stop because you get a deduction if you stop in the middle of a programme. In a post on Twitter, Min got candid with fans and followers, even joking that she promises to "sew myself in for the individual event". "So I had that panic", she said.

She added: "This is my first Olympics, our first program and if my top were to come down, that would have been a disaster".

I can't imagine having this type of thing happen during a routine, let alone during the Olympics. "I was terrified. I tried my best to keep it together". SBNation reports that the skating pair received 51.97 points for their routine, and finished in ninth place out of 10 competing teams.
