The women’s national soccer team, led by coach Colin Bell,
lost 1-4 to North Korea in the quarterfinals of the tournament

It has been 25 years since Korean women’s soccer failed to reach the semifinals of the Asian Games
since the 1998 Bangkok Games, where it finished in 5th place.
The record of losing streak against North Korea at the Asian Games also increased.
We met 6 times and lost all of them.
Belho, who was eliminated from the group stage at the FIFA Women’s World Cup held last July with 1 draw and 2 losses,
was unable to win a medal at the Asian Games and packed up early.
When a corner kick was awarded in the 11th minute of the first half,
Park Eun-sun’s competition in front of the goal blocked the view of Lee Hye-kyung (Yallugang),
who was behind her, and Lee Hye-kyung was unable to properly handle the ball and scored an own goal.
North Korea brought the game back to square one in 9 minutes.
Lee Hak (4, 25)’s right-footed free kick from the left side of the penalty area
was sucked into the upper corner of the opposite goal, making the score 1-1.
The national team, unable to find a proper offensive opportunity in the second half,
ended up giving up a comeback goal in the 36th minute of the second half.
With North Korea gaining momentum, in the 45th minute of the second half,
Lee Hak scored a surprise right-footed mid-range shot from behind the penalty arc to put a wedge in the game.
Korea even gave a penalty kick in the extra time of the second half
after it was determined that veteran defender Kim Hye-ri (Hyundai Steel)
was hit on the hand while handling the ball in the penalty area.
Kim Gyeong-young (my hometown), who took the kicker,
calmly kicked the ball, completing North Korea’s 4-1 victory.
