    Hi guys,
    I'm actually in Seoul and I plan to go to Korea open tomorrow.
    May someone tell me how much cost the entry ?
    I saw that I have to take a metro to SUJIN, is it correct ? How Long time does it takes from JONGNO-3 ?
    I tried to have information from Korean website but it's only written in Korean...
    Thanks
    Christian

    Hi, if you start your way from JongNO-3ga, it will take about 80mins.

    First, you have to take line 5 at JONGNO-3ga toward to" MACHEON".
    Second, get off at "WANGSIMNI" then transfer to the metro "Bundang-line(line 8)" going to "ORI".
    Third, get off at "MORAN" (not SUJIN). and make your way the the exit 3.
    Forth, then take a bus no.55. and get off at "Joongwon-guchung(중원구청)" after 3 stops. Then you can see the sungnam indoor stadium.

    The ticket price for the semi-final is from 15000 to 20000 won.

    I reckoned it's a bit too much to expect a 36-yr-old to perform at a high level throughout a SS tournament round after round. Besides, his much younger colleague is much fitter and so familiar with his game.

    As it is, Lee Hyun Il's progress thus far beating the likes of JOJ , not to mention Ajay and Sakai who are not bad too, is a remarkable achievement already.
     
    Vijay P. and R4yZ0r like this.

    Huang Kaixiang/Wang Yilv are giving their all, what an amazing rally that was, resolute defence but lost it in the end.

    Lee Yong Dae dithers a bit too long to serve, as GC said, no wonder the umpire warned him not to delay.

    It's difficult for Lee Hyun Il to play against fitter players who can stick with him in the rallies. Son is good at whatever Hyun Il does and is clearly faster too. He simply wore his older opponent down in the long volleys and had a more effective attack, same tactic used by Lee Dong Keun at the Korean Masters last year.

    Looks like Team Korea is doing very well on home soil up to this stage.

    Wow Lee Hyun Il that veteran old player not bad. But just that the big difference here is SWH is much younger and fitter.

    Correct
    Correct Korean team is doing a good job at their own home soil.

    Indeed, Lee Hyun Il's longevity , like Peter Gade's, is phenomenal and certainly worth emulating.

    So it is yet again another MD finals match for both Lee Yong Dae / Yoo Yeon Seong. A good job done here. But this will be their last MD tournament together.

    You are right. Lee Hyun Il longevity is really worth praising here. But China MD very good too. They really have good attacking skills and can smash full force with power. Credit must be given to the China MD who really can smash so well with full force power.

    Lee Yong Dae has already send in his resignation letter from international tournaments to BWF. This tournament will definitely be LYD last tournament.

    Zheng Siwei protesting the linecall, he is sure it's landed in but ruled out.

    For now, the carpet at the back needed attention.

    Judging by the way Qiao Bin keeps attacking and smash nonstop I believe he can win this match easily.

    Zheng Siwei / Chen Qingchen also really have good potential. Their ability to keep smashing and attacking nonstop to win points is really amazing. Wow.
