Korean Mens Doubles Pairs
I was wondering if the korean MD pairs such as Kim Dong Moon/Ha Tae Kwan and Lee Dong So/Yoo Yong So have all retired?
I noticed they have not participated since the Olympics.
Thanks for any info anyone can share.

Lee/Yoo are retired for sure.
Ha/Kim seem to still be playing, though they were supposed to retire in the first place.
I suggest you search the forum for more information.

Kim/Ha is still playing. They are participating in their own country representing Samsung in one of the Badminton tournaments there. They usually do this where there is no international tourney.

Kim Dongmoon/Ha Taekwon
Ants is right. Kim DM/Ha TK are still members of the Korean National Squad. Lee Dongsoo/Yoo Yongsung quit. Lee Dongsoo has become a coach of the junior national team since the last World Junior Championship. Kim/Ha are supposed to take part in the current WC. Ha is eager to play and even in the mixed whereas Kim is not keen on playing any more since he wants to concentrate on his graduate studies and to become a professor like Park Joobong did.

Yoo yong soo
Guys thanks for the info! So whats the latest on Yoo? What is he involved in now?

Ra, Kim, and Yoo
Ra is really seriously ill, and now she is dismissed from the Korean National squad even as a coach(more in the thread "Who will domianate in 2005" with the number 20607).
Park JB was a professor for sports science, of course. So does Kim DM want.
Yoo YS just enjoys playing badminton in his team Samsung.

Tks for your update. Much appreciated! I am always a big fan of Yoo for his fighting spirit and fast reflexes. Will definitely miss him.
