This is the first time that Korea has won a gold medal in table tennis at the Asian Games since the 2002 Busan Games between Lee Cheol-seung and Yoo Seung-min in men's doubles and Seok Eun-mi and Lee Eun-sil in women's doubles.

This medal is the first gold medal that Jeon Ji-hee and Shin Yu-bin won in an international competition.

Following the 2021 Doha Asian Championships, they teamed up to win the women's doubles gold medal at the Asian Games, proving once again that they are the world's best doubles team.

Jeon Ji-hee is known as the ace of Korean table tennis. She is from Hebei Province, China.

She naturalized to South Korea in 2011 to continue playing table tennis, where she has played in international competitions.

She was thrilled at a press conference after winning her gold medal, saying, “In China, my level was dropping and I couldn’t get to a higher position, but Korea gave me another chance at table tennis, so I was able to start my second life.”

Shin Yu-bin is a player who has been attracting attention as a 'table tennis prodigy' since her childhood.

This was her first time competing in an international all-around competition.

Although she did not win a medal at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, she attracted attention with her spirited play.

At this competition, she won bronze medals in singles and team competition.

Jeon Ji-hee and Shin Yu-bin, who have been active as a doubles team since 2019, showed fantastic chemistry by complementing each other's weaknesses with their individual strengths.

In this tournament, the 'best in table tennis' Chinese team was all eliminated in the quarterfinals, so they had the good fortune of reaching the finals without facing a Chinese player.

Instead, they faced North Korea in the finals and had to bear the burden of a confrontation between North and South Korea.

It has been 33 years since the men's team event at the 1990 Beijing Games that South and North Korea faced each other in the final at the Asian Games table tennis.

It was also the first North-South final match in all events at this competition.

Jeon Ji-hee and Shin Yu-bin rewrote Korean table tennis history with their overwhelming performance.

From the first game, they overwhelmed North Korea with their power and speed.

They won games 1 and 2 easily, but lost game 3 to North Korea after a close game due to North Korea's counterattack.

Still, the two players did not waver.

They regained momentum by winning game 4 at the end of a deuce match, and took an early lead in game 5 by taking a 5-0 lead.

At the final gold medal point, after a long rally, the opponent's ball was caught in the net, confirming the gold medal.

The pair of Jeon Ji-hee and Shin Yu-bin, who have risen to the highest position in Asia, now have their sights set on the 2024 Paris Olympics.

Jeon Ji-hee said, “I think I need to improve my ranking and manage my condition well,” and added, “I want to win a medal with Yubin in Paris as well.”

Shin Yu-bin also pledged, “I will prepare well as I did and make sure I have no regrets at the Olympics.”
