While the Korean women’s badminton team achieved a splendid feat at the World Championships (Uber Cup), the men’s team, who advanced to the quarterfinals together, unfortunately failed to advance to the semifinals.

The Korean men’s national team unfortunately lost 2-3 to Denmark in the quarterfinals of the 2022 Thomas Cup (World Men’s Team Badminton Championships) held at Impact Arena in Bangkok, Thailand on the 13th.

Heo Kwang-hee (27, Samsung Life Insurance), who was ranked 31st in the world for the first single, performed well, winning the first set 21-13 against Victor Axelsen, the world number one. However, unfortunately, in the second and third sets, they could not overcome the tight match in the early stages and gave up 17-21 and 19-21, giving away the first single with a set score of 1-2.

In the doubles that followed, Seo Seung-jae (25, Armed Forces Athletic Unit) and Kang Min-hyeok (23, Samsung Life Insurance) defeated Kim Astrup and Matthias Christiansen 2-0 (21-18 21-18). In the group stage of this tournament, they also played an active role as Korea’s clear victory card, winning three matches against Indonesia in the third match against Indonesia, defeating the world’s No.

In addition, men’s singles ace Jeon Hyuk-jin (27, Yonex) appeared in the third game and defeated Anders Antonsen, who is ranked third in the world, 2-0 (21-19 21-12), and expectations for the semi-finals were ripened for a time.

However, in the doubles that followed, Sol-gyu Choi (27, National Army Sports Unit) and Won-ho Kim (23, Samsung Life Insurance) lost a painful comeback to Anders Scarab Rasmussen-Federik Sogarde 1-2 (21-18 21-23 17-21). Lee Yun-gyu (25, Gimcheon City Hall), who started his final singles afterward, collapsed when he was defeated 0-2 (19-21, 15-21) by Rasmus Gemke, ranked 13th in the world.

Still, amid the propaganda that pushed the strongman to the brink, the recent rise of Korean badminton was announced to the world.
