    Nope, Ha Tae-Kwon is powerfully built.

    The gray hair guy is Kang Kyung Jin.

    Just Google with his name to find more about him. The Olympic Gold Medalist.

    He's now a "playing" coach in Samsung Badminton Team, where LYD/LHJ belong. He plays in National Tourneys.

    Sure. He was Ha Tae Kwun's partner in the 90s. In 97-98, they won the Swedish Open, All England, Korea Open and ABC together. Most recently, long after his official retirement, he won MD gold and XD silver at the 2005 Canada Open.

    Actually its Kang Kyung Jin that appears to be very 'old' to me because of his hair colour

    I am guessing Coach Kang purposely left his grey hair.
    Many young coaches like to look older and mature.
