As many viewers know, the short track speed skating relay team of Korea (Kwak Yoon Gy, Lee Ho Suk and Sung Si Bak) received the silver medal for the 5000m relay race yesterday. During the medal ceremony, Kwak Yoon Gy jumped onto the podium right before the team received their medal and did a certain saucy hip sway that we’ve all come to know and love. Although many worldwide viewers were probably baffled by the sudden move, those that were in the kpop know-how immediately recognized it as the Brown Eyed Girls‘ iconic Abracadabra dance.

Meanwhile, Canada (Olivier Jean, Charles Hamelin, Francois Hamelin and Francois-Louis Tremblay) won the gold medal and the United States (Travis Jayner, Jordan Malone, Apolo Ohno and my favorite, JR Celski) received the bronze. Despite the heated drama that has been scuffed up recently due to some controversial skating & judging, it’s glad to see Kwak lighten it up with this move.
