that is how the BKA has been spelling his name, at least since 2003 or so. All the famous Jung's before him had a 'ch', though, for the same name: Chung So Young, Chung Myung Hee, Chung Jae Hee.

Name change, but Jae-sung still the same old player
KUALA LUMPUR: A slight change in the spelling of his name, a new status in the world rankings.
Watch out for South Korea’s Chung Jae-sung.
No, he is not a new shuttler. The Badminton World Federation (BWF) confirmed yesterday that men’s doubles player Jung Jae-sung will now be officially known as Chung Jae-sung.
And Jae-sung now intends to soar high in his last Olympic Games in London with his younger partner Lee Yong-dae.
The Korean BA had requested the world body to change his family name to Chung because that is how it is spelt in his passport.
BWF Superseries marketing manager Selvam Subramaniam said: “We changed it following a request from the Korean BA. This is how his name appears on the passport and this was the name submitted to the London Olympic Games organisers.”
The change of name also coincided with Jae-sung-Yong-dae regaining the world No. 1 spot in the world rankings after more than two years.
Jae-sung-Yong-dae moved up to the world No. 1 spot after winning the Indonesia Open three weeks ago. It was Jae-sung’s first tournament in three months and second after the All-England in March.
He has been down with a shoulder injury but a three-month rest has done wonders to the stocky 29-year-old shuttler.
Based on his form and seriousness in changing his name after so many years, expect Jae-sung to go all out to end his six-year partnership with with Yong-dae with an Olympic gold.
This will probably be his last chance as Yong-dae is likely have a new partner after the London Games.

The last sentence seems a bit off. Seems they don't realise he's going to the army

However, you might be referring to the 4-week stint that Lee Hyun Il did in 2003 or 2004, even after he won Asian Games team gold. At that time, Lee had to stop playing and do basic training for 4 weeks but he didn't have to do the full 2 years and he didn't have to play for the military badminton team and instead went straight from his university to his pro team. The 4-week deal might happen to Lee Yong Dae, too, but that won't preclude him from getting a new partner.
In 2004 and 2008, the Korean Olympians took a long break after the Olympics. After Beijing, Ha/Kim played in the Japan Open but the rest of the Olympic team rested until the China Open in November, although all played in the National Sports Festival in October and Hwang Yu Mi, Ha Jung Eun, Kim Min Jung, and Lee Jae Jin all played in a domestic tournament one month after Beijing. This year, though, the BWF will force the top players to play in Denmark, minus the retirees of course.

this single posting, where *chance* said that Gillian Clark said that Jung was going back to the army.
Not that I've heard him asked for his post-Olympic plans but until I hear otherwise, I am assuming there is some misunderstanding. This in-depth interview, for example, came out right after the All England and the writer says, at the end, that he guesses questions about what Jung will do after the Olympics will have to wait until August because there is only one thing on his mind.
He has mentioned his retirement many times in several articles and they all refer to his years devoted to competitive badminton, to his new wife, and to his loss of his mother but I have seen no reference to plans to go back to the army. That doesn't mean that he isn't planning to, of course, but without something more definite, I would stop short of implying that the Star is ill-informed because they don't mention it.

Badminton duo grateful for seven years together
The Korea Herald | 2012-08-08 08:19
Winning bronze medal at the London Olympics wasn't exactly how they wanted to end their partnership, but the South Korean men's doubles badminton team of Chung Jae-sung and Lee Yong-dae said Tuesday they were still thankful for each other's presence.
Chung and Lee, ranked No. 1 in the world, took third place in doubles. They came into London as the favorites, but lost to Mathias Boe and Carsten Mogensen of Denmark in the semifinals.

Lee Yong Dae is right, the gold medal isn't everything. I think for him and Jung, the bronze is just as valuable as the gold. The medal is only the colour, but their friendship will last forever and this bronze holds 7 years of handwork, successes and the bond of this pair.
No matter what I am proud of both of them... they have always been so mentally strong.
