South Korean figure skater Yura Min is being applauded for her courage to continue with her figure skating despite suffering from an embarrassing wardrobe malfunction in 2018 Winter Olympic.

Right in the midst of her performance, A clasp on Min’s red dress slipped, thereby threatening to ruin her Olympic ambitions.

The incident took place on Sunday, when Min had to adjust her dress several times as he continued to dance with her partner Alexander Gamelin.

The pair scored 51.97 points and finished in ninth place. She took to Twitter to thank the audience. She wrote, “Despite the wardrobe malfunction, I had an amazing time competing in my home country! I promise to sew myself in for the individual event. I would like to thank the audience for keeping us going until the end. Couldn’t have done it without you guys. (sic)”

She was later quoted by Detroit Free Press as saying, “Five seconds into the routine, my hook came undone. I was like, ‘Oh no!’If that comes undone, the whole thing could just pop off. I was terrified the entire programme.”
