At the 2018 Winter Games in PyeongChang, they became the first ice dancers of Asian descent to medal at the Olympics and are only the second sibling duo in the history of the sport to share an ice dancing medal.

When the show’s star doesn’t show up for the show, the kids help create an entire show on the spot from the costumes to characters and props to plot. 60-minutes.
