The local favourite moves into the semi-final once again. His third semi-final at the Korean Super Series. 

That wraps up the live blog for now. Later in the day, we will be back with PV Sindhu's match. Do join us. Until then, good bye!

...
13-19. Good play from Sameer but just misses the mark by the slightest of margins!
