Although she admits to not being a good painter, the 23-year-old ice-rink sensation told the Seoul Shinmun Daily newspaper: "I actually can’t paint well and don’t really enjoy it, and I didn’t really like art class during elementary school either. But having grabbed a brush for the first time in a long while, I made a good effort!"

But despite her lack of art skills, she added: "I'm really excited to be cheering on the team. I have a good feeling!"
