Saturday Is Yu-Na Kim Day In L.A. Yay!
Sometimes we're critical of the Los Angeles City Council for dragging its feet on tough issues while giving itself almost Bell-like salaries and falling over itself to pass lame rules like is cat-declawing prohibition. Well, gosh darn it, this council finally got something right: It's "Yu-Na Kim Day" in L.A. Saturday, thanks to Councilman Herb Wesson, who represents much of Koreatown.
The 19-year-old from South Korea is the the reigning Olympic gold medalist in women's figure skating. You know what one of the most popular Google searches for her is? "Kim Yu-Na boyfriend." Yep. And she's in L.A! Wesson gave her the proclamation at City Hall. OMG. (Giggles like a school girl).
