As a result, Korean badminton, which had won one gold medal (women’s team) and three bronze medals (men’s team, mixed doubles, and women’s doubles) in this competition, added a silver medal.
The Korean team took an early lead by scoring four consecutive points in the first set, 2-3.
At 13-13, Kim Won-ho accurately predicted the opponent’s attack course, ran forward, and succeeded in scoring a push.
After widening the score to 17-15, the Korean team seemed to be on the cusp of victory by breaking through the opponent’s defense with a series of smashes.
However, two consecutive in-and-out judgment mistakes resulted in two consecutive scores being conceded.
At 18-17, Kim Won-ho fought desperately to continue the rally while sitting down on the court,
but eventually allowed the score to be tied.
Afterwards, the Indian team was unable to catch up with a single point due to a strong smash from their height and lost 18-21.
The Korean team lost momentum and fell to 7-11 in the second set.
Choi Sol-gyu and Kim Won-ho, who reorganized their line during the interval,
scored three consecutive goals, making the game a close game by one point.
However, the loss deepened as they conceded three consecutive goals at 12-14, trailing by one or two points.
They immediately added two consecutive scores to make it 14-17,
but Kim Won-ho and Choi Sol-gyu’s strokes were shaky one after another,
giving up two points through consecutive mistakes, and the game ended like that.
