I wonder where is Hwang Yu-mi now, did she retire now? I think she is still young
However maybe she felt neglected since her partner Lee Hyo-jung now partner with Lee Kyung-won.
It's sad if she retire, i think she can play with Ha Jung-eun or Lee Yun-hwa
Does anyone know any news about Jang Hye-ock, previous top wd player in 1994-1998?
Is she still playing badminton now? I heard previously she had illness, is it true?

She was a recent addition as a player to a team that represents the Jeonbuk Bank but I don't know how competitive that is. No tournament results visible for her after 2001.
This is all from the info at the above link.

Daegyo Noonnopi is Ra Kyung-min's team for domestic tournaments. Lee Yun-hwa is on the team but Ha Jung-eun is still in high school. Maybe next year.
Hwang isn't playing in this week's Korean national tournament, either. Jun Woul-sik will be playing with Ju Hyun-heui, instead. They played together last year, too, and made the semis. I don't know why Hwang isn't playing this year. I doubt I'll get a chance to ask her, either. Athletes and spectators sit in very close quarters but old male nobodies chatting up female stars in their early twenties is a little awkward especially across what, for me, is still a bit of a language barrier. I suppose I could pretend to be a member of the international badminton press.
The last domestic result I see for Hwang was a tournament last December when she played with Ra Kyung-min and they lost in the final to Lee Hyo-jung and Lee Kyung-won.

He'll be playing in the nationals tomorrow but not for long, I fear. He is to face Shon Seung-mo in the first round.

Thanks for the post. It gives me a great information. So, I think by Hwang is rarely playing in international tournaments, is weakening the Korean team especially in women's double. Maybe it's also because badminton is not a popular game in korea
Tell me event why you may have opportunity to meet Korean player and got infos about them? are you a korean? or you just stay in korea?

I'm not sure how Hwang Yu-mi's absence from international tournaments could be linked to the popularity of badminton in Korea. The national team seems to get funding and go about their business independently of the Korean populace. That's the way it is with most sports here. They do their thing in obscurity until the Olympics come around. On Friday, I had to ask Ha Jung-eun if I had missed her mixed final (she was sitting a few feet away, I'd arrived late, and the schedule had changed at the last minute) and the guy beside me, who plays just as often as I do, had no idea who she was nor that she was even a competitor.
My guess would be that Hwang might be injured but I don't have my ear so close to the ground that I'd be up on that type of news and it doesn't circulate so well even on the news sites.

Hwang, Yoomi, was injured like Jun, Jaeyoun.
But she is supposed to have recovered now.
Park, Taesang, had a serious back injury. He had a complicated surgery early this year. Last week, he lost against Sohn, Seungmo, in the first round of a domestic tournament. But I hope he can come back next year.
I open a new thread with pictures of Daekyo Noonnoppi's players. (Ra, Kyungmin; Jun, Jaeyoun; Hwang, Yoomi; Jun, Wolsik etc.)
