Pilot initiated emergency go around on short final. Pudong Airport

Great flight just finished with an emergency go around at Pudong after an aircraft taxied onto the runway when I was 2kt from touch down. By the time I registered it wasn’t a dream I was on top of the pilot. Not sure about their decision making. I was cleared to land and then during a quick controller change we were all on Unicom for 60 secs or so. I still announced I was on final at 4 kts out. Anyway this was my second Only go around and this one was the real (sim) deal ! 😊 hope you enjoy the action! Thanks to ATC today. Safe flying peeps.
