    Most Korean players named "Jang" actually have that same family name, so that includes '95 All England champion Jang Hye Ock (張惠玉) and also Jang Soo Young(張水榮), but not Jang Young Soo(裝瑛秀).

    And she's still around... and going strong too.

    Now China has:
    Wang Yihan
    Wang Lin
    Wang Xin
    Wang Shixian
    Wang Xiaoli
    Wang Siyun

    Anymore Wangs waiting in the wings?

    PS: Chinese Taipei too has two Wangs:
    Wang Chia Min & Wang Pei Rong
    Please note that Wang represents 王 & 黄, Mine is the former.

    That's 'Wong' not 'Wang'. There's only 1 chinese surname pronounced as 'Wang', and its written as

    Whereas in parts of asia outside of China, the surname 'Wong' can represent "王" or "黄". Examples of known personalities would include "Wong Fei Hung" which 'Wong' represents "黄". And Joey Wong, which in this case "Wong" represents "王".

    Not only one chinese surname pronounced as "Wang" in China. So far I know there are two, which are "王" and "汪". Both of these also pronounced as “Wang". I think there are more than two also.

    That's "汪" 'wang 1', first sound in hanyu pin-yin, "王" is pronounced as 'wang 3', third sound in hanyu pinyin. An example would be Lisa Wang, the HK veteran singer/actress. In Chinese 'BaiJia Xin' " List of 100 family surnames ", there is only one surname pronounced as "王" 'wang3' . It was something decreed in history by the chinese emperors, no second surname of similar pronunciation was allowed. In fact it was allowed purely as an exception.

    I know "王" is pronounced as second sound whereas "汪" is pronounced as first sound. But in your previous post you only mentioned "Wang" but you did not mention the sounds. So, when "王" and "汪" are written in english, there is only one word, which is "Wang". Since this forum is an international english forum, I guess most of the members would not care about the chinese surname, as long as they know both words also pronounced as "Wang".

    i think the LEE's are more
    Not so many of these are part of a new generation, though. Li Xuerui(李雪芮) seems to be, though. The spelling may be different when Romanized but it's the same in Chinese. The same goes for Li Tian(李田) and Li Gen(李根) though they have yet to make an impact on the senior and junior stages respectively. I think the Wang point is well made.

    They have the same last names but not related. They still can't compared with Sidek brothers. I wonder it's a world record that so many brothers play in the national team of any sport.

    in Mandarin, 王 = Wang, 黄 = Huang; so they are different...
    in Cantonese, both 王 & 黄 = Wong;
    of course there are other local language like the Fukinese pronunciation usually used in South East Asian Chinese communities that Singaporeans and Malaysians may be more familiar with...

    Is it her Chinese name or is it dubbed by Chinese media? How come Mia Audina can be Zhang Haili?
