1. Fragmented image

What does it mean? Well, a celebrity has an image to uphold but most of the time it may not be the true self of that individual. When Yuuri did Eros, both Victor and Nishigori noted this point by saying that it is another image of Yuuri. Many has known him for the insecure skater he is but in this particular program, we see the more confident side of him. Now, the question is which one’s the real Yuuri?
