    I just wonder after the olympics all the korean top single players just disappeared ?
    I haven't heard anything about any retirement from any of them. Im mostly focusing on Shon Wan Ho and Lee Huyn Ill! They didn't even participate in their home tournament!

    Lee Hyun Il has retired. For some reason, it wasnt really "officially" announced, it was pretty quiet. But his retirement has been mentioned a few times on the badzine website.

    Shon Wan Ho has gone to the army, after injuring himself.

    Korea seems to be lacking players in this category. And I don't see any serious upcoming players from their country. There's Hong Ji Hoon but I dont know how good is he. And Park Sung Hwan has completely disappeared - no idea what is he doing or is he even making a comeback.
