The signs were not good from the start.
Cha Jun-hwan, who먹튀검증 prepared to perform in line with Michael Jackson’s dance song medley, was interrupted by the judge’s remark that there was a foreign object on the ice before the start, removed it and resumed his preparation posture, and his concentration was somewhat disturbed.
Cha Jun-hwan, who started acting soon, handled his first jump, the quadruple salchow, without any mistakes, but fell during landing in the next task, the triple lutz-triple toe loop combination jump, and his GOE score was reduced by 2.95 points.

Meanwhile, Cha Jun-hwan is aiming for a come-from-behind victory in the men’s free skating, which will be held from 10:15 am on the 12th.
