Thank you narnia for your interesting input. I didn't know KDM has a Ph.D. This is very rare for a professional badminton player and even in other sports. I could only think of arguably the greatest badminton player from the US, the late Dr David G. Freeman from California, who was a medical doctor, a neurosurgeon. Dr Freeman was US Champion from 1939 - 1948 (no competition from 1943-1946) in MS (6 times), MD (5 times) and XD (3 times). He also won the All-England in his only try in 1949. He also scalped some great names from then Malaya in the Thomas Cup, And he also played other racket games proficiently such as tennis, squash and table-tennis. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dr._David_G._Freeman Just wonder what KDM did for his Ph.D and did he achieve this after his retirement? Seems like sports education and the like must be a natural choice for him. Not too good news for Canada I'm afraid, as KDM does not think Canada could benefit as much from his experience even though he has set up a badminton academy there. And all along KDM remains a patriotic Korean. And his good wife Ra would only follow him. Since KDM is interested in polishing his English, ENG would seem to be a good place to go after Canada. At the same time he could imbibe a bit of English culture. Unless he finds Asian culture more at home, then MAS would seem a possibility as English is also used though to a less extent by players. Good luck to KDM and his partner Ra KM.
