“I am thrilled to perform at an ice show abroad after a long time,” Kim said. “It’s my first time (performing) to Spanish friends, so I will do my best.”

Kim will donate her pay to UNICEF. She will perform in Murcia and Gran Canaria on Friday and Dec. 26, and in Madrid on Dec. 28 and 29.

Kim is a two-time Olympic medalist, winning gold at the 2010 Olympic Games and silver at the 2014 Olympics. Fernandez, the host of the upcoming ice show, won a bronze medal at the 2018 Olympic Games. He recently announced he would retire after the European Championships in January 2019.
