A movement of facing outward on HB - swing forward and counter salto forward with legs straddled to catch HB in reverse grip was named after Kim Kwang Suk who performed it for the first time in the asymmetrical bars event at the 25th World Gymnastics Championships in October Juche 78(1989).

Kim obtained the full marks of 10 to take the first place at the asymmetrical bars event of the 26th World Gymnastics Championships held in the United States in Juche 80(1991) by performing the world’s most difficult movement at the time, thus striking the professionals with wonder and admiration.

American paper The International Herald Tribune and other world media reported in those days that amateurs and spectators were totally mesmerized by the DPRK’s Kim Kwang Suk who won a gold medal in the apparatus final of the world championships and that experts rated her movement as the best unprecedented in the past.
