Did you get the flag right?
I dont think South and North korea will combine to open a tournament, if I know them South Korea will be the only one hosting the competition.
North Koreans basically hardly have an idea of what the outside world is like, well its quite rare, this is due to the control over the country

The first time I saw it I thought it was just a North Korean Flag and I was laughing so hard, I thought it was an April fools joke.

Looking forward to watch the doubles! Great with mixed teams, maybe Koki/Kenta could make an upset!? :)

The Japanese seem to be very good at doubles! They defeated the Chinese team at the World Team Classic! Looking forward to them indeed!

Exactly what I had in mind :) If JSH and Ma Long were pairing then I would have voted on them. It could be so mean to see the worlds best at defensive and offensive play together. :)
