Holding a mini-interview in her dressing room at Olympic Stadium on August 15th, Krystal revealed that she felt intimidated going on the ‘Ice Show’ and added that she didn’t expect first place.
Krystal said, “On the day of the last contest, mistakes were being made during the lift and it was unstable during practice. The other cast members were exhibiting excellent skating skills, so I didn’t expect to win.”
Meanwhile, Lee Dong Hoon commented, “Even though I’m an athlete, there were times when I wanted to give up. On the other hand, Krystal doesn’t give up no matter how hard and tired she is. Her perseverance in achieving greatness was inspiring.”
Lee Dong Hoon also revealed the real reason behind how Krystal was able to handle such a fantastic lift. He complimented, “I was surprised by Krystal when we were performing the lift. When you’re performing a lift, you can’t flex your entire body; there are some parts you have to loosen up and some parts where you have to flex. However, Krystal had a great sense of that. It’s not something you learn and I think Krystal was gifted with that intuition.”
After performing the awe-striking lift, Krystal was asked by fellow f(x) members and other friends to teach them how to skate; in addition, Krystal stated that she will continue to ice skate.
