Korea does a doubles shuffle
"The Korean National Badminton Team has decided on its entire doubles roster on the eve of the departure for Qingdao of its twelve-member Sudirman Cup squad.
All but one of the 8 doubles players bound for Qingdao were exempt from the qualifying tests of the past few days and all of the other stalwarts re-affirmed their places on the team. In addition, 8 new members were selected with 7 others being let go. The most notable casualty was German Open runner-up Kim Sa Rang, who made the transition from singles to doubles in January but has since been left off both teams, for now."

Older pic already, wanted to post it before but here goes From the annual(?) Denmark v Korea juniors friendly ...
Don't ask me who is who but I'd say Korean cloning is quite advanced

Don't know about cloning, but you can bet they share the same hairstylist.
Glad to see that they don't mind dressing against stereotype (girls in blue, boys in pink).
How was the event? Is this something you saw in person?

During the world champs was watching TBH and KKK getting annihilated by the Korean mens pair (sorry didnt catch their names) damn big boys one of them was like the hulk made the racket look like a toothpick in his hand.
The korean diet of lots of beef and kimchee looks to be serving them well. Some of the hardest looking asians i ever saw were in seoul, and thats not to mention the film oldboy (great movie)

Found out the above was the 2010 edition and played in Thomas/Uber Cup style with 3 singles and 2 doubles. Maybe the results are ment to stay behind closed doors as they seem impossible to find other than a mention that Axelsen beat Ha Young Woong (and again in the SF of the German where Ha was seeded #1)
Danish selection for the meet:
Mikkel Mikkelsen, Værløse
Kim Astrup, Ikast
Flemming Quach, AB
Morten Brødbæk, Højbjerg

I see they could only spare a bowl and scissors for the girls

The haircuts are imposed on the girls, obviously. It is a control mechanism. The regular students at their middle and high schools have uniforms and some haircut rules but the bowl haircuts seem to be more strictly enforced for the athletes at that level.

Japan Open draws have been announced.
And there were some surprising changes to the MD pairs.
Lee Yong Dae will be partnering with Ko Sung Hyun, while
Jung Jae Sung will be partnering with Yoo Yeong Song.
Personally I find LYD&KO quite exciting to watch,
probably the future korean ace pair after JJS retires.
Thought LYD would carry on until JJS at least upto the olympics,
anyone know what's going on?
Combination of JJS's power with Yoo's speed play will also be
very interesting to watch..

i think korea player has big improvement.
but to win thomas cup korea must win 1 single and is too hard ( biggest opponent still china suppose lee-jung can win offer cai-fu, koo-yoo win offer chai-guo. still nedd 1 win and in singles PSH vs LD, LHI vs CL and singles 3 vs CJ. it's too hard). in uber and sudirman cup is more hard.
