I am not surprised China fielded LXL/QZH. Given CY/FHF's current form, there is a strong possibility that they will lose the match. On the other hand, LXL/QZH had been doing well recently, winning the AE and India SS, they should be a force to be reckoned with.
Much as I dislike to admit it, IMO, it is unlikely that Korea can win the cup. On a player to player comparison, i personally think that China has an edge in all the disciplines except MDs & WS. Unless, Koreans can really up their game.. highly unlikely to upset China.

On paper and with this lineup, I'd give Korea a 40% chance of taking the Cup. They need to win 3 of the first 4 matches, because the last one (WD) is a pipe dream for the Koreans.
XC/MJ have not played KSH/KHN, and it will all boil down to whether KHN can take the heat from MJ. And then KSH needs to run to the massage table.
The MS belongs to China. Unless of course, something goes tragically wrong.
The MD actually has a better than 50% chance of going Korea's way, provided KSH can stop himself from getting cute with his racquet skills.
If LXR freezes on the final day and/or SJH discovers a whole new aspect to her game and strategy, here is where Korea can take the Cup.
It's all very slim and dreamy, but it's still a chance it can happen.
But if it goes to the last match, Korea don't stand a chance.

You'd better ask Ma Jin and Kim Ha Na that - they're still exchanging mascara and eyeliner and fiddling with their hair....

let give it some numbers and punch them into a spreadsheet to calculate the probability for both teams.
if i use the following probabilities:
then using my spreadsheet which exhaustively lists out all possible outcomes, the calculation give us:
China wins: 77.1%
Korea wins: 22.9%

BC server has a strange sense of humor. 5 mins before SC2013 final, it starts to acting up.

I could see SJH in her very best form, especially the semifinal match against Inthanon.
Their head to head can't be a judgement for this meet (if the game goes to the 4th match), I give 50:50 for LXR vs SJH.

Come to think of it,the SF scare for from INA is a blessing in disguise lest CHN is lulled into complacency and let the undesirable or even shocking result occur later in the SF or F.
The lineup looks fine though I didn't quite XC/MJ to replace Z/Z. Let the show begin.

Oh yes, I think the order of play is what KOR wanted, good for them.

MJ looks very relax, bad news for Korea

never underestimate Korea in team matches.

For KOR team, to be able to perform in this finale is already a good achievement by itself... fate may paint differently if it's drew to face INA or DEN squad on the way here....

As for WS, I have a slight preference for WYH to be chosen instead of LXR who is sometimes given to lapses of concentration (brainfade as some would say except that this term is more appropriately used in F1 auto racing, the nature of the sport is different).
As for Xu Chen, he actually took the blame for that QF loss saying he inexplicably lost focus in the latter part of the 3rd set. Let's see how he redeems himself this time. Here we go, the battle begins.
