The pair ended up placing ninth out of the 10, with an overall score of 51.97 points, but Min received praise on social media for her professionalism and recovery from the sartorial setback.

That might not seem like that big of a deal, but as Min told Jeff Seidel of the Detroit Free Press it was a hook that held the entire outfit together.

Min wasn't too upset, joking about the malfunction as she came off the ice.

During her Olympics debut in PyeongChang, Min had a very unfortunate wardrobe malfunction after her costume came busting open in the back, threatening to fall right off and expose her breasts to the world. "'If that comes undone, the whole [outfit] could just pop off.'" Luckily, they managed to finish their performance without any further malfunction taking place. "I was terrified the entire program". As Min was expertly doing her routine, the top of her dress decided that it would be the flawless time to disconnect in the back. Reacting fast and with much grace, Min continued her performance with her 23-year-old partner Gamelin, who improvised with her in order to prevent her top from slipping off her shoulders. "So I had that panic", she said. "I went from the beginning to the end". I didn't stop because you get a deduction if you stop in the middle of a program. Gamelin added: "We were skating well _ you just had to keep everything, well, intact".

Though Min and Gamelin are both American-born, Min said the South Korean crowd helped them. Min's dress issues hurt their points total as they finished ninth, but they're optimistic for the ice dance competition starting February 19.

Their points in the team event may have suffered, but Min avoided complete disaster.
