    That depends. Is that Gil Young-ah on the right? Do you happen to know the tournament this photo comes from? Gil won silver at the first 2 Korea Opens playing with a woman named Shim Eun-jung. I'm trying to track down a photo.

    Hwang Hye-young is here. That looks like her on the left.

    That photo doesn't look like it was taken in Barcelona. Not with that 555 logo. Are you sure it's the Olympic pair?

    Chung So-young looks like the one on the right in your photo, doesn't she?

    This is very hard to see but one thing that is clear is that Shim Eun-jung is a whole head taller than Jang Hye-ock, who is just a tiny bit shorter than Gil Young-ah. That is consistent with the height of the player in your photo. I'd say that is Shim Eun-jung. Gil Young-ah's other partners where Chung So-young and Jang Hye-ock and it is neither of them so I'm pretty sure that is Shim.

    Here are some photos of Shim Eun-jung. Here it mentions that she is 175cm tall. That is consistent with those photos. Where is your photo from? It doesn't look to be a final. I think all of Shim's tournament wins were with Jang Hye-ock, not Gil Young-ah.

    That is Sung Han-kook. Prior to the success of Shon and Lee Hyun-il, Sung was one of Korea's more successful men's singles stars. He reached the semi-finals of the All England. He now coaches the national team and the Daegyo Noonnopi professional team(home of Ra Kyung-min, Ha Jung-eun, Hwang Yu-mi, Lee Yun-hwa, and Jun Jae-youn) and is married to Kim Yeon-ja.

    Seawell, these are the husbands of three of the women you asked about. They are married to Kim Yeon-ja, Chung Myung-hee and Yoo Sang-hee respectively. Sorry I can't find a corresponding wives' club photo.;)

    On the subject of Gil Young-ah, I opened a thread on a documentary I found about her.

    By the way, did you ever check on that top photo? I've now been convinced that the woman in the top photo is definitely not Chung So-young. The same person has convinced me that it is actually Chung Myung-hee, like in the photo below it.
