  • Intro:

    Reaction after South Korea beat Thailand 3-1 in their Sudirman Cup semi-final from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on Saturday (May 25).


    SOUNDBITE (Korean): Lee Yong-dae, Korea:

    "Because it is a team event, we don't want to let the team down. So we just wanted to focus on the match starting from the very beginning. That worked out really well today. And it was the main reason we won."

    SOUNDBITE (Korean) Lee Yong-dae, South Korea:

    "In the final against China (if they beat Denmark), I think the mixed doubles - we are starting with - is the most important tie to us. Other than that, there will be really close matches in the men's doubles and women's singles, then the women's doubles as well. We are the underdogs, so we won't feel as much pressure as China do. So let's see what we can do in the final. "

    SOUNDBITE (Korean): Sung Ji-hyun, South Korea:

    "I think we have only fulfilled half of our goal in the Sudirman Cup. We will try our best in the final. If God is watching us, we will have a chance."

    SOUNDBITE (Thai) Ponsana Boonsak, Thailand:

    "Our goal in the Sudirman Cup is not just reaching the semi-finals. Everyone did a great job today and I hope we could do better. But everyone is happy to at least get a medal. It is a very important day for Thailand badminton because many people are watching the match back home. I think our performance here will make badminton more popular in Thailand, and we can also get more support as well."
