If she is admitted, she will start to attend classes from the fall semester this year, the agency said.

She said she just wanted to rest and spend some time planning her future when she held a gala show to commemorate her retirement earlier this month.

But her decision to study at graduate school is also seen as her first step toward a bigger ambition ― becoming an IOC athletes' commission member.

In delivering a 148.34-point performance in the free program, Kim made it clear to the world that the ''Queen'' was indeed back.

Kim's overwhelming victory banished doubts over her ability after she sat out the 2011-12 season to contemplate her future.

She is best known for being a former member of South Korean girl group After School from 2009 to 2017, and has acted in various television dramas including Queen Seondeok (2009), Ojakgyo Family (2011), Jeon Woo-chi (2012), Golden Rainbow (2013), High Society (2015) and Marriage Contract (2016).

On May 31, 2017, Uee graduated and left After School and its agency, Pledis Entertainment and now is under Yuleum Entertainment.

Her spins were tight, and her vivid presentation seemed almost like the music was coming from her movements.

Kim's performance in Friday's short program, where she finished with 69.97 points, was seen as a solid effort short of greatness.

She mentioned that desire when she returned for the 2012-2013 skating season after a year of hiatus.
