Sportmen will find something sincere in this ad, I guess. At least I did.

Make it simple. Make it memorable. Make it inviting to look at. Make it fun to read.

It probably has a big concept locally. Nike always goes further.

I can see the idea. The description shouldn't be 'the hottest athlete ever'. People love her not because she's hot.
It's because she's the first and the youngest figure skater, the area which Koreans never achieve a gold medal before. It's all about the image on Yuna, the models 'personality and character', and how the public in Korea takes it. As a Korean, I'd say it perhaps works well locally.

I think by 'hottest' the translator meant 'most popular' and not 'most attractive.' Not the best translation. The feeling and message come through better in Korean.

I'm very proud of her. But this ad made nothing for her. Also for NIKE. More important thing is.......nothing.....
