Figure skater Kim Yu-Na recently attracted attention when she admitted to drinking alcohol.
IU began asking her about food saying, “You can’t eat stuff like this right? Do you drink?”
Yu-Na surprised everyone by responding, “As an athlete, good nutrition is essential. I have almost no opportunities to drink. Though I do have a glass or two after the season is over.”
Netizens showed various reactions to this revelation saying things like “I didn’t think Kim Yu-Na would drink alcohol,” “I’m completely shocked,” and “The more you drink the more tolerant you become to alcohol. Just don’t drink at all!”
As a 20-year-old woman living in two countries where the legal age of consumption is 18 (Canada) and 19 (Korea), you’d think this wouldn’t be news. Oh how Korea hates to see its 국민여동생’s image tarnished by being human.
