Olympic figure skating champion Kim Yu-na hosts an ice show "All That Skate Spring 2012" at a rink at Olympic Park's Gymnasium in Seoul for three days from Friday.

Kim will skate to Canadian singer Michael Bublé's "All of Me" as a finale of the first act before the intermission. She will be dressed as a man and use props such as a hat. In the second act, she will unveil a new gala program to "Someone Like You" by British pop star Adele.

The show boasts a star-studded cast that includes 2010 Olympic gold medalist Evan Lysacek of the United States. It also features 2011 and 2012 world champion Patrick Chan of Canada and Italy's Carolina Kostner, this year's women's world champ.

An ice-based acrobatic show will be staged for the first time in Korea during the performance. A team of male ice acrobats from Russia will perform somersaults and other acrobatic feats while skating. MBC will broadcast Sunday's show live from 4:10 p.m.
