this guy playing style looks like Taufik, even the way he walks. Anyone has the same thought as me?

Off course his style look like taufik. Kenichi tago idolizes taufik very much. He also bandage his knee like taufik, eventhough he doesn't have knee problem..

He put up a good fight against Wong Choong Hann at the Thomas Cup 2008.
Tago looked relaxed but actually wasn't - his errors cost him the match.
This young man will go a long way if he can learn to be consistent
And, as others have pointed out, he does mirror Taufik's playing style.
