How about five? That's how long it took into her Winter Olympics debut for Yura Min's dress to slide down her shoulders in what could have become a disastrous wardrobe malfunction during her appearance on the rink during Sunday's event.

"I'm not no judge or anything, but I think her shirt is coming off, dude", Jones said in a video posted to Twitter.

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. "'If that comes undone, the whole [outfit] could just pop off.'" Luckily, they managed to finish their performance without any further malfunction taking place.

But instead of stopping the show in a panic, Min gamely continued her performance with partner Alexander Gamelin, improvising as she went so as to prevent her top from slipping off her shoulders. I didn't stop because you get a deduction if you stop in the middle of a program.

"I would like to thank the audience for keeping us going until the end. In my head, I was thinking, 'Is it better to stop and fix it and get the deduction or keep going?'"

"It started to come down so I had to stop my twizzle and pull it back up", Min said.

Min and Gamelin finished ninth of 10 skaters.

"[We] just had to keep everything, well, intact", he told NBC press. They're representing South Korea at these games as part of the host country's "special naturalization" program that has helped boost their numbers for the 2018 Games.

Min, who was competing in the figure skating team event, was lauded by viewers for performing - and recovering from the wardrobe near-disaster- "with class".
