    Hoon is not fat, maybe chubby or overweight. But yeah, he's probably the winner of the most overweight or highest BMI contest amongst top 200 world pro badminton players. :p

    JJS is definitely not fat. He's stocky. No one can smash 280 km/h consistently if they're fat. ;)

    Kido is also slightly chubby, not as much as Hoon, but not stocky either.

    Qiu Zihan is also to the chubby side.
    Kido is another one.
    KKK is also slightly chubby. too much drinking and partying.

    but the most famous of the chubby boys would be Zhang Jun.

    Markis Kido, the 2008 OG champ.

    Not so famous, Thai's Tesana, aka Kung Fu Panda. He's big size but can jump smash like any skinny bloke

    Fat is not the same as muscular. Also, it's Jae Sung.

    @kwun: Hmmmm, Saina is (or was? She seemed a bit fitter in the AE) heading that way, although slowly. Doesn't show in her face or neck, but that butt and thighs weren't pure muscle ;) Not that I mind, she looks healthier than Kim Ha Na :D Also, as long as she is content with her performance, I don't see why we should criticize her (or anyone else for that matter).

    Now if a player starts moving slower and slower, and winning less and less, like a certain MD Olympic champion, that is reason for concern. Looking at him in the All England I find it hard to believe he is a professional athlete. Same goes for Hoon, though, for me it just goes to show that they're not 100% committed. While not everyone can perform and maintain the (nearly dangerously) low body fat levels of players like LCW, crossing the 20% is a bit too much if you ask me.

    A couple Chinese WD players might be considered as well, Yu Yang looked slimmer in the past ;) Kido's sister could also afford a slight weight loss, methinks...
