    He's been there since mid May this year and has been playing with the locals. Pics of him and local shuttlers are circulating on Twitter and FB.
    Some of my friends also saw him in person hanging out with Malaysian .

    Good guy LCW, seemed he's been looking after Tago since he's been in Malaysia. Even got him a corporate stint. Nice! :):):)

    with the rates of japan producing top women singles & doubles players, i think in very short time Japan will have few world class men single players very soon

    I understand that Park JB's contract with Japan will end in Dec 2016.

    Anyone heard anything whether it will be renewed? or is he leaving?

    Considering how much he has brought Japan badminton forward, Japan would be remiss to allow him to leave.

    It's also be crazy to leave just when the fruits of his labour are about to ripen.
    The only thing missing is men.

    Does this mean NBA has forgiven him, or is Petaling ignoring the situation?
