    watched it today, it is very interesting and funny :)
    they also have the part 2 if anyone wants to check it

    I think we can see there are some pretty common mistakes made by beginners such as who should take what shot
    they have some good shots, but they don't have the mind of doubles player yet (of course, you cannot expect them to master it in one week)

    the other factor is most likely nervousness. the yellow team (2 girls) made so many mistakes, it's like what? 8 of them?
    the kid and his father is unbalance. the kid cannot do backhand plus he is very short (well as expected from a kid at age) he cannot take high serve well, and the father needs to do most of the job after the serve.

    the last was pretty good

    There is another episode on youtube with 2 members from the Korean women's team - training them on the basics - those women were awesome.

    yeah, I watched it till they go to Taeneung Athletes village.
    wow, village for all national players! it is crazy.. it is a village. all of Korean national players from boxing, hockey, snowboarding, badminton, wrestling, etc all of them are in there

    that training place looks like hell.. it is very very fascinating to see their training camp, thousands of equipment, a lot of coaches, and that cafeteria!
    to be honest, I never saw a training camp. I even doubt Indonesia has one. never heard of it.. I'm sure China has it

    everyone who wants to know how hard to becomes the best in the world should see the video

    that episode is the first episode of their badminton series
    they have like 7-9 episodes on badminton alone (and then newest one they are doing basketball now)

    I am watching the last episode now. I can see they improved a lot in the past 2 months since they played badminton

    Saw the 2nd episode (the first match)... the kung fu panda guy was hilariously agile! Never before seen a 250 lb fella do a forward flip. :eek:

    what a let down, the program is only for 1 hour.. usually it is for 2 hours, not sure why it is only for 1 hour now. maybe they are still preparing for their new season. next, taekwondo!

    Yeah, this korea sports variety show hosted by Kang Ho dong and a few Korean celebrities is pretty funny and interesting. :D
    Always watched it whenever new and latest episodes are uploaded and I will always ROFL and laugh till my stomach pain for each episode.
    Right now, I'm still waiting for the badminton special episodes with english subbed on KBS World youtube's channel. It has been 2 weeks though. Wonder what the staffs are doing :rolleyes:
    Still patiently waiting for it although I had watched the raw episode:p. Match between LYD/YYS and KDM/PJB is a cracker :cool:

    Yeah, and the blooming and success of the K-POP and Korean wave phenomena is also as a results of this ;)
    But I'm more into beauty of badminton princess/queens, it is a bonus if they are young too, just like in the case of Kim Ji Won :D
