since the men’s doubles pairing of Lee Cheol-seung and Yoo Seung-min and the women’s doubles pairing of Seok Eun-mi and Lee Eun-sil in the 2002 Busan Games.
Shin Yu-bin and Jeon Ji-hee won gold medals at the Asian Games for the first time in their lives.
Following the 2021 Doha Asian Championships, they once again proved that they are the world’s best doubles team by winning the women’s doubles gold medal at the Asian Games.
The team of Shin Yu-bin and Jeon Ji-hee enjoyed the good fortune of reaching the finals without ever having to face a Chinese player,
as the ‘best table tennis’ Chinese teams were all eliminated in the quarterfinals.
It was their ‘skill’ that made the finals, which took place with the heavy burden of the ‘North-South confrontation’, a victory.
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.
Shin Yu-bin and Jeon Ji-hee did not miss this rare opportunity and rewrote the history of Korean table tennis.
Jeon Ji-hee and Shin Yu-bin, who were ahead in both strength and speed,
sprinted toward the gold medal from the first game.
