    I'm not sure if YYS is retiring. According to the last article about him, he mentioned that he would still look for a younger player to pair with. I don't know if he meant to play locally or internationally.

    He has retired from the national team at least. I'm not sure if he has decided to play domestic leagues.

    No he has not. He is continuing international play with more focus on mixed doubles in the near future. He is partnered with Jang Yena in the French Open later this month. His personal goal is to help the younger players come up.
