    17-8 to 23-21, the mas pair are laughing at us, "hey, who lost hope first? The players or the fans?"

    I guess maybe that’s what happens when you stop caring and just play with no nerves or expectations...

    What in the blue hell happened in the last 5 mins? The Koreans were robbed in the day light and in front of 100s of people. That's a Ocean's 11 s*** right there lol.

    Play hard. Train harder.

    SINGLE TITLE FOR KOREA
    A huge disappointment for Korea camp, Sung Ji Hyun delivers the only victory as her teammates falter one by one in four remaining finals. Sung outplays the off-color Michelle Li who performs out of expectation, succumbs meekly, 11-21 / 9-21. Earlier on final day, Seo SJ/Chae YJ also couldn't present serious threat, going down to HKG duo Tang CM/Tse YS who crawling back to fine form, 18-21 / 10-21.

    One more lopsided encounter also witnessing Chou Tien Chen reclaims men's singles crown, third title in this season after INA S1000 and THA S500 event. The top-seeded player is too strong for Heo Kwang Hee who's still raw and lack of shot variation. President Tsai Ing Wen shows up in awarding ceremony to drape silver and gold medal around the necks for runner-up and winner respectively.

    Thailand combination Kititharakul/Prajongjai surprise the more fancied rival Kim SY/Kong HY in nail biting encounter, 21-19 / 18-21 / 28-26 that pulsating in 84 minutes of play. An epic battle saw the different style of play by the more aggressive Thailand duo especially Kititharakul who's proactive, quick interception with her cross court netshot who troubling the Koreans. A morale boost for Thai ladies who didn't score outstanding feat prior this tournament.

    A fascinating turnaround in men's doubles final when magical comeback displayed by Malaysian independent pair Goh VS/Tan WK, after securing first game 19-21, Goh/Tan fizzle out and quite passive in second game and the middle of third game. It seems game over when Choi SG/Seo SJ manage hefty lead, 17-8 but slip at the end. They lose composure instead of forcing to attack ferociously while the more experienced pair stay calm and relax to narrow the gap with demonstrating some brilliant defense shots, forcing deuce then the narrative is so predictable for the Koreans, blew away golden chance to swallow bitter ending, 21-23.

    If that's case, let Chinese Taipei Open swap places with Korea Open.

    Tough luck for Korea. If it's JPN or CHN, I am sure that JPN or CHN emerge victorious.

    No kidding. Particularly when the Korea Open has been designed to fail this year. You'll see that the current total prize money has dropped by a third since the forecast early this year, while the Chinese Taipei Open increased by a factor of 2.5 in the same interval. More importantly, the Korea Open has been shunted out to an inaccessible venue for 2019. It can be quite fast - relative to the distance - to get to the airport itself, but you have to pay a premium to get across the bridge, regardless of whether you're in a car, a bus, or a train. Then you still have to get that 'last mile' to the venue.

    Unlike when it was in Seoul - or even when it was in downtown Incheon, Chungju, or Yeosu - there is no local population to draw on from that artificial island and Korea doesn't have die-hard badminton fans. To be honest, I was surprised they intended to charge money for the tickets this year. Still the same low prices as in the past but now you have to add at least 50% to the price to account for the cost of getting out there.

    It looks really bad for Korea Open. This is definitely not good for promoting badminton in Korea. Let's wait for the upcoming Korea Open. I want to see if it is getting better or worse than the last year.

    That's interesting.

    Japan is moving the other direction. The Japan Open, in 2018 and 2019, was held in the Musashino Forest Sport Plaza (which will also be the venue for the Olympics). However, it will be relocated to Yokohama Arena in 2020, which offsets a couple of the more conspicuous disadvantages of Musashino. Namely, 1) Seating capacity: There will be a much-needed increase of 7,000 to 14,000, and 2) Location: Musashino, whilst in the Greater Tokyo region, is fairly inconvenient to reach; it takes an additional hour from Tokyo Station, with various transfers. By contrast, Yokohama Arena, whilst still located right next to Tokyo, is only a short walk from Shin-Yokohama Station (the main Shinkansen Station), and is easily accessible from most parts of Japan.

    All-in-all, this is a good sign as far as badminton in Japan is concerned; although I am not sure whether the current boom will continue after the Olympics.
