Who are currently the top table tennis players in North Korea? It appears to though that they have been a little bit inactive in the international scene. They used to have top players who can compete the Top 5 ITTF ranked table tennis players (even beating some of them).

 

They seemed to have no entry in the last Tokyo Olympics 2020 and currently have no top 100 ITTF ranked players. 

 

Did they decide themselves not  to compete globally?

Interesting!

I don't recall any DPRK table tennis players as of late. 

Latest uploaded video on YouTube with North Korean table tennis players playing international games was 5 years ago. 😱

Kim Hyok Bong is probably their last great table tennis player. He won gold medals along with Kim Jong in the mixed doubles of the 52nd International Table Tennis Federation competition.

He beat Joo Saehyuk in the third round of the men's table tennis singles event at the London 2012 Olympic Games.
