Just seconds into her Olympic debut, South Korean ice dancer Yura Min noticed her fabulous-looking red mini dress had betrayed her, coming unhooked and threatening to expose her as she and her partner leapt and spun their way through the routine.

Thankfully, with a bit of improvisation and a winning smile, the wardrobe malfunction was minimized and Min and partner Alexander Gamelin made it through the performance without setting the censors off. It was a close call that could’ve easily been much more scandalous, but Min and partner handled it like absolute pros.

“Five seconds into the routine, my hook came undone,” Min told the Detroit Free Press. “I was like, ‘Oh no!’…If that comes undone, the whole thing could just pop off. I was terrified the entire program.”

Worried she may have been, Min still managed to skate her way through it, adjusting her moves slightly to keep her garment from slipping completely and pausing just once during a twizzle (a moving spin where you get extra points for holding one leg in the air) to adjust the top.

The 22-year-old US and South Korean dual citizen took to Twitter to comment on the event herself afterward, claiming she had “an amazing time” despite the mishap and thanking the crowd for keeping them going. She even dropped a sewing joke!

She’s obviously taking the slip up in stride (or “in stroke,” in skating terms). Check out this cute video clip she Tweeted out afterward.

The South Korean duo ended up completing their routine and received a score of 51.97, which was good enough for ninth out of 10 competitors. In case you’re wondering, reigning champs, Canada’s Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir, won the event with a score of 80.51.

Some fans think that Min and her partner deserve an honourary medal for the way they handled this potentially disastrous wardrobe mishap. We can’t administer medals, but we can express our admiration in GIF form. Tell her how she did, Bruno!
