2012 Asia U-19 Junior Championships in Gimcheon, Korea
Gimcheon, is a small city quite smack in the middle of South Korea with a population of around 150,000 people. In Indonesia, it looks like a Wonosobo with way less people... I'm not quite sure why Korea chose this city time and time again; Gimcheon was used for the 2010 Korea GP. My best guess is that Korea Badminton Association just want to spread the popularity of Badminton all over South Korea.
Aside from the annual Korea Open PSS in Seoul, they spread the tournament geography around:
2008 Korea Int. Challenge in Yeosu
2009 Korea Int. Challenge in Seoul
2010 Korea GP in Gimcheon
2011 Korea GP Gold in Hwasun-gun
2012 World University Badminton Championship in Gwangju

Official list from BAC can be downloaded here
There is a question from me, why can Korea send many players in each category, more than other country.
They send 6 in BS and GS respectively and 5 pairs for BD and GD and 6 pairs for XD. I thought there is a limit in each department.
As for Indonesia, there are something make me confused too.
In Mixed Team Indonesia depends only on Shesar Hiren Rustavito and Arif Gifar Ramadhan in BS, Fikri Ihsandi is not included.
