Upon arrival, Lee said she will not be distracted by the public's interest in her competition with her archrival Nao Kodaira of Japan for the women's 500m race, which is the South Korean skater's specialty, at the PyeongChang Winter Olympics.

She wrote: "Despite the wardrobe malfunction, I had an incredible time competing in my home country!" She also altered her movements so that her arms would be kept back in order to keep her costume in place.

How about five? That's how long it took into her Winter Olympics debut for Yura Min's dress to slide down her shoulders in what could have become a disastrous wardrobe malfunction during her appearance on the rink during Sunday's event.

"This is my first Olympics, our first program and if my top were to come down, that would have been a disaster" Min told the Free Press.

Gamelin backed his partner up.

The South Korean star's skimpy red dress slipped just seconds into her short dance routine, threatening to reveal just a little too much to the millions watching around the world. "I only noticed it halfway through".

While competing in the figure skating team event, she only paused once while performing synchronized side-by-side spins, or twizzles, when her top began slipping forward off her shoulders. "It wasn't because we were skating poorly". Min and Gamelin will also compete together again at the individual pairs competition.

In the end she finished ninth out of 10 teams. They're representing South Korea at these games as part of the host country's "special naturalization" program that has helped boost their numbers for the 2018 Games. The skater will start her Olympic schedule by joining the 1,000m race on February 14, but the much-awaited 500m competition is slated for February 18.
