    They definitely wouldn't survive in that era, can you imagine them trying too attack prime koo/tan ? good luck :rolleyes:

    I don't understand why yoo can't just play with LYD anymore, I remember they got back together again in US open 2019 (I think) and they lost in the final, but since that tournament they separated again

    No one cares if LeeWang lost against HokiKobayashi , I think i also dont care or dont talk about it last week. But If Minions lost, pages increase by 2. Selling power or total care? I reckon.

    Yeah at their peak they struggle against old boe/moe, not to mention 6 straight loss against endo/watanabe. if they struggle against endo/wata defense what do you think gonna happen when they play koo/tan ?

    Ko/Shin and Marcus/Kevin only met three times before, H2H 2-1 in the Minions favour but their last meeting was in 2016 ? Only 3 times they played, don't prove anything unless they met recently in a year and all three encounters in one party's favour.

    I don't understand it either, YYS is, at least imo, a better player than KGJ in pretty much all aspects and looked sharp during the Korean National Championships...

    But it is very hard to get information from Korea over here, especially since there don't seem to be many Koreans on this forum who can (and want) to share these insights...

    There will be struggle for every pair in the world. Its up to them to overcome it. EndoWata isnt really an old pair though.Yuta is genius, but then they will lose to ShettyRR. Its differenty styles.
    In the end , all that matter is the number of titles.

    A pity I didn't know of these Korean players until recently when they got back to play...
    I've seen Ko and his XD partner played last week and it seems she is pretty good too.

    Reading the game well and playing smart winners.
    No doubt they didn't win but as Gill mentioned, she was a good WD player till Korea kinda "drop" her.
    Really wondering why the ferderation (of countries) will drop good players. (Same with GLY/CPS and TWK/GVS)

    yeah yuta is a genius, and so was koo or lyd. the majority of pair back then were simply a bad match up for mfg/kss, I honestly doubt they could get more than 1 title a year, but hey kudos to them for taking advantage of the weak era of MD

    Since all the legacy KOR MD players are independent now and can pretty much pair with whomever they want, I think Lee/Yoo not reuniting is because of a personality conflict.

    During their WR1 heydays, Lee was never great at sharing the limelight with Yoo for all the hard work he did in the partnership. I think Yoo eventually just got sick of being Lee’s unheralded shadow.

    Not sure if KooTan or those Korea MD can beat ShettyRR though. We have seen ShettyRR beat EndoYuta easily too in 2019

    so Theres never a weak era or strong era. If i have to say weak era, i d say XD is much weaker now than 5-10 years ago.

    2006-2007 Koo/Tan would, though.

    Of course they can beat them easily. How can you even think that ? First of all ShettyRR defence is not top level of this era. And if it isn't top 10 level of this era, it definitely is not top 10 level of prev era (2009-16) (not an opinion, but a fact).

    Maybe but i'm really not sure. Why use the past Era to compared with current though, why not use now as the benchmark? I definitely think peak ShettyRR will denotate the defence of best pairs. They have done that against top EndoYuta.

    You said all that has great defence, but AhsanHendra isnt particularly great in defence and they are still winning H2H against say Boe/Mo.

    Also KooTan isnt great example, they are just lazy. maybe exist just 1-2 year, Hard to say you will have a chance to play them at that time even.
