The Koreans typically play well especially at home. Add to that the fact that the world's best always seem to pass on the world's top prize money, and it is no surprise that results like last year's - when, with all the top men and Ra Kyung-min retired and Shon injured and Lee HI coming back from a military hiatus, Korea still bagged 3 golds - are par for the course.
Lin Dan and the top Chinese women have missed every Korean Open since 2002 and all the top Chinese men skipped it in 2003 and 2005. Taufik came only once in my memory, in 2004 to lose in the first round to a Spaniard. It doesn't matter whether it's the week before and nextdoor to the Japan Open - as in 2002-2004 when many top players claimed to be resting up for the JO - or if it is all by itself in the schedule as it was last year, it never attracts the players that tournaments with lower prize money like the Japan or China or Singapore Opens do. The All England draws a better contigent with less prize money too but obviously, because of its history as the unofficial world championship, it doesn't count.
This year, I expect at least as dismal a turnout as last year considering that it is within a month of the WC. Last year the last major tournament before the WC(the Malaysian Open) was a month and a half prior. Korea will probably win all 5 golds.

Of couse, Lee YI is good, but is not good enough. By the way, who is the ever greatest singles from Korea? Lee YI?

I can't really help you on the men's singles. I don't know of any up and coming talents in that event. I'm pretty sure the men's singles final in the last few nationals has been Lee HI vs. Shon Seung-mo. Correction. Park Sung-hwan was 2nd last year and won the year before. He is only 22 but I just don't see him challenging the top Chinese men even in the future.
Other Koreans have won events or come second at events like the All England (Like Lee HI) but I don't know if any have reached #1 as Lee did, briefly. Shon is the only Korean to win a medal in men's singles at the Olympics.

Well, Korean players are quite inconsistent but Jae Sung-Yong Dae are rising stars.

It's just a matter of time.The Koreans will definitely be a force to be reckoned with.Look at their achievements in football and hockey and it will give you the shivers.In the early seventies Malaysia were as good as the Koreans.I am sure Koreans in their forties and above know the likes of Chin Aun, Mokhtar Dahari,James Wong and Santokh Singh.Now look where the Korean Footballers are compared to our pathetic players.It's even worst in hockey.In 1974 Malaysia was the 4th ranked in the world.At that time who knows about korean hockey players.Beware Malaysian shuttlers.It's high time to think as real professionals and pull your socks up.With their good discipline,dedication,strength,stamina and battling spirit the Koreans deserves admiration.

An article that came out after Lee Hyun-il won silver at this year's All England mentioned 3 Koreans who had reached the semis of the AE in the past. One was Park Sung-woo and the others were Lee Gwang-jin(who, like Park, did it in '96) and Sung Han-gook(1986). No data is available from the KBA on Sung so I'm guessing other results from these other singles players from the 80s and 90s are also not on their system, which also only presents top 3 finishes so it wouldn't reflect consistent QF appearances. Lee Gwang-jin, by the way, reached the finals of a few tournaments himself: '95 Chinese Taipei Open(runner-up), '95 Canadian Open(won), '96 Korea Open(runner-up), '96 Lauder Air Cup[sp?](runner-up).

By the way, by the time the seeding is done for the World Championships, the standings will be like this, plus whatever the point results are for the Korea and Hong Kong Opens. That means that Korea's Lee/Jung have a good chance of going into the worlds as the top seeds but it also means that anything could happen. If every pair plays both events, the teams that will have the hardest time of improving their ranking will be Clark&Blair and all the Malaysian pairs except Chan/Koo because these 4 pairs will have played 11 events, meaning that 1000-2000 points will come off their totals before their second HK points go on. That may be why all the Malaysians are heading to Madrid before the Hong Kong Open. Jung&Lee will be playing at home and then in Hong Kong with half the top 10 missing. Excellent opportunity.

hey event, thanks for the info.
i was just wondering about the second korean md pair that will be sent to madrid, which i believe is hwang ji man and han sang hoon. haven't seen han in action for a long while now and hwang is now partnering lee jae jin for most tournaments and enjoying a relatively high degree of success. so have the big-wigs given up on the hwang-han pairing and merely sending them to madrid because of ranking circumstances or is (was) there some bout of injury that i've failed to recall?
