Wi Seo-young, who set the record for the first time, is the first Korean female athlete to break the total score of 170 points in her debut at the Junior Grand Prix, and is the first Korean female athlete to break the short technical score (TES) of 40 points after Yuna Kim. 

She placed 1st at the 2018 Overall Championships Junior, 2019 Types Championships Seniors 1st, 2022 CS Nebelhorn Trophy 2nd, etc. She is currently active as a promising Korean female figure skater following Kim Yu-na along with Yoo Young and Kim Ye-rim.
