Should be an interesting combination, but I somehow never considered Yoo as LYD´s partner... He is not as spectacular as Ko or the Kims imo.
Pretty solid, but he is more an allround player, not the type of backcourt player (like JJS or KSH)?!
Propably better in the serve and return game than Ko and psychological more consistent.
But I wonder if this combination can shine consistenly?! Surely they´ll have success, but long-lasting...
If all this is true and about to happen after the CM, I´m at least as excited about Ko/Shin as Lee/Yoo!
I also think Ko has with Kim the weakest MX double girl. I believe Eom is the most promising. Then Jan Ye Na. On the other side all MD are very good MX doubles player. The question is here the same: CAn they bring out a pair that can really compete with ZN/ZY, MJ/XC and TA/LN (and JFN/CP) in big events?

Yoo is a good match. His smashes are powerful, second to JJS on the Korean team. And his defence is better than Ko. Will be interesting to see them progress.
Guess I can close the Ko/Lee thread that I started.

Whilst I do not believe the preference to have one big smasher in a pairing to be essential, I think LYD's game does need it. He thrives at the net and although he is competent in the rear court, he is most proficient at the front. And if you don't have a rear court player to support that ability, LYD cannot do what he does best. And is made to look mediocre.
Yoo, for me is not an obvious choice, but there is no one else and sometimes when players can "click", it can bring out the best in them - Setiawan/Ahsan for example.
I see LYD's frustration with Ko, I really hope Yoo will shine with LYD. But if I were a team manager, I would also look at any potential up and coming youngsters... I'm not aware of any in the Korean team, and it would be a quite a risk as they would lack experience. But I feel with LYD's leadership and guidance, the right newcomer could develop very quickly.

Correction 柳延星 not 杻延星

Actually, the spelling 杻 is from official BKA records put out for the Korea Open. It's really deep into the list of 漢字 in a Korean computer's input method so it seems doubtful that it was typed in there by accident.

I think its an interesting combination , I've never thought BKA would pair them up . But since they did , I'm looking forward to both Shin/Ko and Lee/Yoo Can't wait for Denmark Open.

Shin and Ko play for the same team domestically so they have already played as a pair several times. They haven't won a national title yet. They've been beaten by teams such as Jung Jae Sung / Kim Sa Rang, Han Sang Hoon / Lee Yong Dae and Cho Gun Woo / Lee Yong Dae. In their most recent outing, they lost in the first round to unknowns Jang Sung Ho / Lee Jung Hwan. Their matches against Jung/Kim and Cho/Lee were very close and exciting, however.

Yoo has a better grasp of fast and flat push shots in addition to a powerful smash.
Imo, there seems to be a new modus operandi for the up and coming pairs..aka.. liu/qiu, saputra/pratama, ahsan/setiawan, endo/hayakawa that favors fast net and flat exchanges.
Even the old school mighty Danes (mogenson/boe) have had problems when faced with these new styles.

I think Mo/Bo will always struggle to play the fast flat exchanges with the likes of Ahsan/Setiawan and Liu/Qiu, their long limbs really hinders that sort of fast play whilst their reach gives them good court coverage so the conventional attack/defensive formation suits them better.

Can't wait to see the result
I surely hope that YYS could be the "right" partner for LYD.
