Hey guys,

TableTennisDaily has managed to get in contact with world number 27 Kim Minseok. This is one of the first times we have managed to get an interview with a table tennis player from Asia.

So I ask, what would like to know about Korean's Kim Minseok? The best questions will be added to the interview with this formidable table tennis star!

How do you feel with competing along Ryu, Joo and Oh ? They are from the "older" generation and still have big success and many victories. Is it hard to know that you compete with/against an Vice-Worldchamp and a Olympic Gold medalist (between others) ?

What do you think of the chinese dominance? Do you think you can beat (one of) them in an important tournament like the World Chamionships?

I think you are very talented. What do you think that will become your highest position on the World Ranking list?

Is shakehand grip become the most style played in Korea's pro right now? Do you feel that will Korea ever produce again any penhold player who is about similar as Ryu or other older generation?

What will be your plan in the future for participation in TT league? Do you plan to try to get a chance to play in either ECL or CTTSL?

-What do you think about the next generation of table tennis?
-What do you think about table tennis' prospect in South Korea?
-What do you think about table tennis' prospect in the world?
-Why don't the Korean National team use Chinese rubber on the forehand?
-What is your target for 2013?
-What is your thoughts about 2016 Olympics?

-What do you think about defensive playing style?
-Who is your inspiration in table tennis, both nationally and internationally?

It seems that you started to improve quickly and climb up the rankings over the last couple of years, what did you do to achieve this burst of improvement and what differences did you do to make the top 50?

1-do you boost?

if answer = yes then all questions about boost

if answer = no then repeat 1- until answer = yes

Ask him about his "over the table reverse backhand technique" & his backhand smash. Both are beautiful and effective!
Timing, spin, speed, placement etc...

What are you truly playing with (blade and rubbers) ;) ??? Xiom or Butterfly (maybe something else) ??? which part of your game do you think you have to improve or train much more to get top 10 ??? Thanks for the answers, i really like your backhand style :D

My question is:
What do you say to your opponent before the match - when it is your friend?
(like if you play another guy from Korea in some Pro Tour)

Question: If you could make 1 rule change to make table tennis even better to watch what would it be?

cmetsbeltran15
01-08-2013, 03:38 PM
Of the players who are not far better than you, which one would you least like to play?

Arghh too bad I missed the deadline. One of my favorite players to watch. He's got a nice BH flick, but his straight arm FH loops are amazing. It's like he tries to throw a knockout punch every other shot. I guess I'd ask how he developed that shot. Very Chinese team/RSM-like.

Haha he probably took some lessons from RSM...
