Star figure skater Kim Yu-na said Thursday that she plans to introduce two new programs in her star-studded ice show, scheduled from May 4 to 6 in Seoul.
The 23-year-old picked "All of Me" and "Someone Like You" for her two exhibition programs.
"All of Me" is by Canada's three-time Grammy Awards winner Michael Buble and the latter, of course, is by English singer Adele who received six trophies including Album of the Year at the 2012 Grammy Awards.
Kim said that she will use a variety of props such as a jacket and hat in particular with "All of Me" in the annually-held ice gala.
"I have tried to show a new character all the time, but it is the first time for me to do such an exceptional makeover, so I am looking forward to it", Kim said in a press conference.
Choreographer David Wilson, who also attended the conference, said that he and Kim had wanted to show entirely new programs and they will be totally different to her previous ones.
Along with Kim, the Olympic champion, the ice show features other Olympic gold medalists.
American Evan Lysacek, who triumphed in the men's singles at the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics, and China's Shen Xue and Zhao Hongbo, who won gold in the pairs, will perform in front of local figure skating fans.
