Yesterday, news of gold medals in badminton and golf was reported at the Hangzhou Asian Games, which are now halfway through the competition.

Let’s connect locally to hear more detailed news! Reporter Kim Sang-ik!

Let’s talk about soccer first.

I was worried that yesterday’s game against the home team, China, would not be easy, but did our players overcome it well?


The national soccer team, led by coach Hwang Seon-hong, advanced to the semifinals by beating the home team China 2-0 in the quarterfinals last night.

Despite one-sided cheering and booing, we scored the first goal.

In the 18th minute of the first half, Hong Hyun-seok’s free kick split the opponent’s net.

And in the 35th minute of the first half, Song Min-gyu scored an additional goal and won 2-0.

Our players, who are challenging for their third consecutive Asian Games gold medal, will now clash with Uzbekistan in the semifinals on the night of the 4th.

Another semi-final match is between Japan and Hong Kong.

This is the resolve of captain Baek Seung-ho.

Is there one more stock that crossed the Great Wall of China yesterday? Badminton beat China and won the gold medal, right?


Yes, women’s badminton has risen to the top in Asia for the first time in 29 years in the team event.

The final against China was a complete victory that exceeded expectations.

They won 3-0 without giving up a single set.

This is the first time we have won the women’s team event at the Asian Games since the 1994 Hiroshima Games.

It’s been 29 years since we defeated China.

These are Ahn Se-young’s thoughts.

Golf won a gold medal in the men’s team event, right?


Golf won medals in both the men’s and women’s individual and team events, including a gold medal in the men’s team event.

In the men’s team, Lim Seong-jae, who won the silver medal in the individual event, placed 2nd, Kim Si-woo ranked 4th, and Jang Yu-bin ranked 5th, comfortably beating Thailand by 25 strokes and taking the gold medal.

It has been 13 years since the men’s team gold medal was won in Guangzhou in 2010.

In the women’s division, Yoo Hyeon-jo won a bronze medal in the individual event, and in the team event, Lim Ji-yu and Kim Min-sol took the silver medal after Thailand.

[임성재 / 골프 단체 금, 개인 은 : 저희 선수 4명이 다 최선을 다해 금메달을 따서 다 너무 칭찬해주고 싶고 저도 열심히 했다고 칭찬해주고 싶은 생각이 들고 너무 행복합니다.]

[유현조 / 골프 단체 은, 개인 동 : 저희 팀이 엄청나게 메달을 원했고 뭐라도 따보자는 생각에 일단 최대한 열심히 쳐봤고 그 뜻대로 돼서 잘된 것 같습니다.]


The national baseball team, which is aiming for its fourth consecutive Asian Games victory, actually struggled with the Hong Kong pitcher’s slow pitch?


Yesterday, Hong Kong pitchers threw slow balls of around 100 km/h, and our hitters had a hard time in the beginning because they couldn’t get used to these balls.

In particular, 4th batter Kang Baek-ho performed poorly with 0 hits in 4 at-bats and 3 strikeouts.

In the end, with concentrated hitting in the second half, they won the cold game 10-0 in the 8th inning.

Korea will play the second group match against Taiwan this evening.


What games are scheduled for today?


There are also table tennis, women’s doubles, mind sports chess, and men’s and women’s team competitions.

Woo Sang-hyuk will participate in the high jump preliminaries.

Baseball has a second preliminary round game against Taiwan in the evening.
