Discussion in 'Korea Professional Players' started by petertan_sg, May 16, 2010.
hmm... have to find some korean frens...
More photos of all the KT&G players here.
Photos (oh, and a story) about Jung and her team-mates here.
Link not working. Please check.
Yes, KT&G took the 'tobacco' out of their name and had to change their URLs. The badminton photos are now here.
I think she paired up with ...... Kim Ki Jung... it's quite long time ago watching her game on youtube...
so it might not be correct. she is cute and seems very nice person.
Have not seen JKE's name in tournaments for a while. Is she injured? Her regular WD and XD partners have paired up with other players.
That's half right. Kim Ki Jung is indeed playing XD with Kim So Young now. However, Kim Ha Na has played WD with no one else. Jung/Kim won the Chinese Taipei Open but have had no good results since. They dropped out of the Hong Kong Open just before retiring from matches at the Korea GPG and withdrawing from the China Open. Kim Ha Na is not entered in the domestic event right before the SSF. That could mean because she's going to KL or because she is unable to play either.
Korean WD pairs have falling back as of late. Eom/Jang, Shin/Lee and Jung/Kim have not been seen reaching far in recent Denmark, French, China or HK tournaments.
Kim Ha Na is apparently injured and staying in Korea for a while in rehabilitation.
Naturally, partner Jung Kyung Eun will also stay with her and do some pattern/communication training on court.
This is not confirmed though, just my assumption. Hope they'll be back in time for the SS final though.
However, it does seem like Kim So Young has improved significantly above the rest. She used to be a fall-back in the team, but is now becoming a player that S.Korea can rely on in both WD and MXD. She and Jang have this chemistry that should be kept alive.
Lee So Hee injured her knee in Taipei. Shin was to be temporarily paired with Eom - who is to be concentrating on mixed - until Lee is back (all that is here) but then Eom got injured and I don't think she and Shin have even been on court yet. I guess they started one at the French Open.
Neither Eom nor Kim Ha Na are entered in individual events next week in Korea but Jung Kyung Eun is playing mixed with Yoo Yeon Seong and Shin Seung Chan with Kim Ki Jung. Jung is playing WD with Bae Seung Hee.
Jung playing XD with YYS should be interesting. But playing WD with BSH?? I thought they had mothballed her since the latter months of 2010
As this is a domestic event, 'they' would be KGC, the pro team of which Bae, Jung, and Bae Yeon Ju are members. More on what became of Bae Seung Hee here. KGC always had her even after she left the national team in 2011.
