    That isn't the Korea Open official site. That seems to be some kind of internal IBF site that came up if you tried to click on the event before the draw actually came out. There is a few functions on the IBF site that give you one of a few different login screens. The messageboard is one. Another is the Inside IBF/Login menu from the left side.

    Actually, the website noted on the IBF tournament calendar isn't the Korea Open official site, either. The official site is this:

    BF is our hope

    In terms of internet website useful info, Asia is way behind Europe. Imagine the WC2007 in Malaysia, no realtime score and no timely official results ... BF is our best bet in all badminton related topics ... from Lin Dan's Malaysia Open incident, Taufik's controversy, Smash City new business hours to badMania's travel schedule... :D
    Seriously, long live the " BF " !!!!

    Forget the menus and click on "View Draws". That's the only place for results. There is no live scoring as such but I believe they are getting the results up on those draw sheets reasonably promptly.

    What is going with Korea Open website, when I clicked on "View Draws" button, it saved a file "3000652_wm.dv1". Is this what I am supposed to get?

    Just found out why, it worked with IE not Firefox browser. The website was written with biased scripts and ..............badly tested.

    Malaysia isn't a country without computers, I guess we will make things pretty for the WC2007...

    A bit off topic..

    ..:):p :D ..
    As far as WC2007, hmm, don't worry, i'm sure they'll touched up & "pretty up" the website even more;). Besides, they have til next yr, so should be plenty of time; that is if they don't go the "procrastinate" route, which i don't think they will..;)
    Actually if one is to read & follow the latest articles/news that are on the IBF official website, one will get a feeling that some or most of the infos on those articles were already being talked abt or brought up or discussed in this forum...;)
