Match Descriptive

Japan beat Korea 3-1 (29-27, 25-19, 21-25, 25-22) - duration 1:50
24-Jul, start time: 15:00, end time: 16:50 - Attendance: 3'400
City: Jeju City, Korea; Hall : Halla Gymnasium
JPN won against a long time Asian rival, KOR with a set score 3:1.
KOR showed a good start with great emotion in front of crowded Korean fans, but too many unforced errors in serve receptions caused KOR to lose the first 2 sets. KOR came back strongly in the 3rd set, but JPN continued to put great pressure on KOR with a strong serve and great team plays, resulting in a 3:1 win over KOR.
