    The Official Newspaper Article

    According to a Today's Article on a Korean Sports Newspaper (sports.chosun.com) written by the journalist Choi, Mansik, who is quite familiar with Ra KM's family

    "From the Best Pair to a LIFELONG Couple"

    In the world of Badminton they, Kim Dongmoon (31, Samsung Electrics) and Ra Kyungmin (30, Playing Coach at Daekyo Noonnoppi), who once acted as the best mixed pair will join a Hundred Years' Ties (Own Comment OC: the Pledge of Eternal Love).
    Ra KM announced to marry Kim DM on the coming 25th and is still looking for a wedding place.
    Their marriage is regarded as a seldom happy event in the world of national sports world. Till last year's Olympic Games in Athens they played 8 years together, so there were some guessing their close relationship but never having dreamt of a marriage.
    Ra KM said they have been a couple for two years and added that they know by merely looking in each other's eyes what the other part wants and so they promised each other the marriage at the same time. (OC: It seems that they knew they want to marry each other by only looking in each ohter's eye.)
    After the Athens Olympics when Ra KM suffered from several injuries and was in a big slump Kim DM's solace was a great cheering-up. On the other hand Kim DM felt a deep affection for Ra KM who is always a modest and calm person in spite of being a famous world player.
    Especially, there have been some happenings at Ra KM's parents' house because she told it to her parents on late afternoon of 27th with an already settled wedding date. Therefore, Ra KM's mother and elder sister are now in hurry to make preparations for her marriage, dowry and an officail meeting between bride's and bride-groom's parents.
    Further Ra KM mentioned that Kim DM is going to spend a whole year in Canada for language studies from Jan. 2006 on (OC: How Lucky badminton fans are in Canada!) and so they hastened their wedding plans after careful consideration. Suh, Myungwon, chief of Dae Kyo Noonnoppi team, congratulated them on their marriage with the words that according to their fantastic harmony shown by them as player pair once they will live happily for life. Kim DM is now facing the final examination of his doctoral thesis in December, and Ra KM is going to continue her post as a playing coach at Dae Kyo Noonoppi alone without him.
    Kim DM/Ra KM won 14 World Grand Prix tournaments in a raw just before the 2004 Olympic Games and was unbeaten in 70 consecutive matches being World No. 1 mixed pair.

    Yes. Fantastic. I do hope he'll have the chance to do some coaching while he's there but before he's through with the language studies, that might be a trick. Still, what an inspiration that would be for young Canadians to have the great Kim Dong-moon giving them pointers in any language!

    WOOT to KDM coming to canada. I wonder where he'll be learning his english.

    Just a chance to see him or watch him play live would be awesome for me and Canadian badminton players.

    Congratulations to Kim Dong Moon and Ra Kyung Min (to be completely honest, I had been rooting for them to be together since Day 1, whenever that was). They had it so bad missing the Olympic gold not once, but twice... so Kim and Ra, live happier than anyone else!

    Excellent news! Wow! Congrats to the pair/new-couple ... guess that speculation about them sharing the same water bottles had more connotations than first imagined :D

    What I need now are Kim/Ra bobble-head dolls that I can put on my car dash.
