I'm happy: Ryu

South Korea coach Ryu Hao Suk

After three losses, we finally gained a win, so I’m really happy. Thailand the Asian champions are a good team. We played well in the first and second sets, but the game dragged into a fifth set, so we need to work on avoiding that in the future.

South Korea No. 14 Yang Hyo Jin

I think the Thais have improved their skills. We analyzed the Thai strategy, and that led to our win.

Thai coach Kiattipong Radchatagriengkai

Congratulations to the Korean team. They are a very good team. In the first and second sets, we played slow, but in the third and fourth sets, we improved. In the fifth set, we made several mistakes in blocking and defense and missed the chance to win.

Thailand captain Wilavan Apinyapong

In the first and second sets, we couldn’t play at our full strength, After changing some players, we improved in the third and fourth sets. Tomorrow, we will play one of the best teams in the world, Brazil, so I hope we can learn a lot from that game.
