This is Correspondent Ha Seong-ryong.


Shin Ji-ah, who succeeded Yuna Kim by embroidering the silver medal at the World Championships, went back to gold with a silver medal.

As if unfamiliar with the successive flash baptisms, the 14-year-old girl was unable to speak in surprise.

[Jia Shin / Figure Skating Junior National Team: (Reporters) I never thought there would be so many.

I'm not good at interviewing...

(figure skating) acting seems easier.]

She unfortunately missed the gold medal by 0.54 points, but enjoyed the thrill of the silver medal she won after 16 years.

[Jia Shin / Figure Skating Junior National Team: To be honest, I didn't even think of a medal, but I think I'm happy to win a silver medal as well.]

Jia Shin, who started figure skating at the age of 8, has grown so much that she can perfectly digest 5 types of 3-round jumps in 4 years. .

Following her surprise bronze medal on stage at her debut Grand Prix last year, she emerged as Yuna Kim's successor at her first world championship.

[Jia Shin / Figure Skating Junior National Team: Of course, Yuna Kim is my role model.

I haven't met her yet.]

Shin Ji-ah, who showed her shy 'fan spirit' when she happened to find martial artist Chu Seong-hoon at the airport, smiled brightly, promising a better future.
