With almost 1,000 spectators, including Indonesian President Joko Widodo, South Korean Prime Minister Lee Nak-yon and World Taekwondo President Choue Chung-won, at Jakarta Convention Center (JCC) Plenary Hall, South Korea's gold medal run started with Kang Min-sung, who topped the men's individual poomsae after beating Koorosh Bakhtiyar of Iran with a final score of 8.81-8.73. We are extremely proud and excited to watch our nation's best athletes compete in this exciting global event, and look forward to celebrating their success with them. They have managed to return with at-least a medal in all the nine editions, including a bronze at the 2014 Games at Incheon, South Korea.
