How/Why did Ra Kyung Min start playing doubles?
I have been wondering why Ra started to play doubles in the middle 90s. She was among the world's top singles and had won a few titles before that. Was she viewed as less promising than other Korean LS players?

So she could spend more time with KDM playing and training together?

Many of the Korean players play all the events when they're young and some when they're old in domestic events. Yim Bang-eun plays singles regularly. Lee Jae-jin played singles in the last domestic tournament and Lee Hyun-il played doubles in the Korean nationals last November. With the women it seems even more common.
When economet sees the thread, we'll likely get some more enlightening information.
