The player’s name is Lee Yong Dae from South Korea. In this segment of the clip, he is doing the typical jump smash. He is winding back his arm, pulling it behind him, keeping his shoulders level and the hand at the ear. This is the correct stroke for any forehand, upper-body shots.

precision is amazing because the shuttlecock hits right in the middle of the watermelon, not on the sides. You can see the birdie is fully lodged into the watermelon, instantly cracking the fruit into pieces.

This is another Korean national player who comments that this stunt is very “simple” to do and he feels that all players can do it. However, I feel that his expectations are too high. Most players do not have that strong of a smash, and majority of amateur players are not very precise. I could probably do it, but it would be one in multiple attempts, and although I could puncture the skin of the watermelon, I would not be able to explode it into pieces like Lee Yong Dae did.
