    He answers a few questions here. Beyond that, there isn't so much of note. He is on the national team but at the last two tryouts, he placed 4th in his group (half of the guys trying out) and didn't beat anyone of note. Son Wan Ho wasn't forced to participate in either event. As a junior, he was one of Korea's best. He finished second in one national tournament but he didn't really get any international success then or since. In his last year of high school, Kang Ji Wook was Korea's best at the time and he was runner-up to Axelsen in the German and World Juniors then took bronze at the Youth Olympics but Kim didn't do well there. He played on a university team for 4 years, finishing runner-up to Lee Dong Keun once and winning the national uni title once after Lee had graduated. More obscurity than injury. In Korea, he was playing on the MG Saemaeul team but has been on the military team from this year.
