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!

10:47 (IST)15 SEP 2017

13-21. That's all. Sameer tried his best but just couldn't get the better of Son.

10:47 (IST)15 SEP 2017

13-20. Match point for Son.

10:47 (IST)15 SEP 2017

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

10:45 (IST)15 SEP 2017

13-18. Still fighting, Sameer Verma.

10:45 (IST)15 SEP 2017

12-18. Very good defense from Sameer. He blocked everything that Son threw at him until the Korean made the error.

10:44 (IST)15 SEP 2017

11-18. Son is just too good. Too good!

10:44 (IST)15 SEP 2017

11-17. Sameer needs to do something now if he wants to get back in the game.

10:43 (IST)15 SEP 2017

11-16. Unlucky for Sameer.

10:42 (IST)15 SEP 2017

10-15. Brilliant rally! Sameer giving everything he has.

10:41 (IST)15 SEP 2017

9-14. Son's smash just goes a tad bit wide.

10:40 (IST)15 SEP 2017

8-14. Right idea but poor execution there from Sameer.

10:40 (IST)15 SEP 2017

8-13. Absolutely superb! Even a full stretch dive cannot save the point for Sameer.

10:39 (IST)15 SEP 2017

8-12. Superb! Terrific cross-court smash from Son!

10:38 (IST)15 SEP 2017

8-11. A couple of important back-to-back points for Sameer,

10:36 (IST)15 SEP 2017

6-11. A five-point advantage for Son now. Very difficult for Sameer to win the match from here.

10:35 (IST)15 SEP 2017

6-10 now. Good judgement from Son.

10:34 (IST)15 SEP 2017

5-9. Yet another terrific rally as both shuttlers exchange a barrage of shots to the body. Son takes the point with a terrific smash,

10:32 (IST)15 SEP 2017

5-7. Close call! Good judgement by Sameer there.

10:31 (IST)15 SEP 2017

2-6. Sameer needs to muster all his determination and physical strength if he wants to get back in this game.

10:29 (IST)15 SEP 2017

2-5. Ooh! Brilliant rally. In the end, Son takes the point with an inch perfect smash.

10:28 (IST)15 SEP 2017

2-2. Sameer seems to be getting back in his groove. Loud support for Son, though.

10:27 (IST)15 SEP 2017

1-2. A good shot from Sameer gets him the first point of the game.

10:26 (IST)15 SEP 2017

0-1 in favour of Son. Lady Luck, again at his side.

10:25 (IST)15 SEP 2017

The third game is about to begin.

10:24 (IST)15 SEP 2017

That tactical change worked wonders for Son. Sameer definitely looked a little underwhelming after that terrific first game. He needs to bring back his A-game in the final game if he is to win.

10:23 (IST)15 SEP 2017

10-21. With that Son draws level. One game all.

10:22 (IST)15 SEP 2017

10-20. Game point for Son.

10:22 (IST)15 SEP 2017

10-19, now.

10:21 (IST)15 SEP 2017

8-18. Seems like there is no way back in this game for the Indian.

10:21 (IST)15 SEP 2017

8-16. Finally, a point for Sameer. Can he fight back from here?

10:20 (IST)15 SEP 2017

7-16. All credit to the World No.1. He has been very thoughtful in his attacking play in this game.

10:19 (IST)15 SEP 2017

7-13 now. Six Straight points. He is running away with the game.

10:19 (IST)15 SEP 2017

7-12. That's brilliant from Son. That slight shuffle at the last moment to wrong foot Sameer. Wow!

10:17 (IST)15 SEP 2017

7-11. Four straight points for Son. The tactical change is working well for him.

10:16 (IST)15 SEP 2017

7-10. Son is getting a hold on this game now. Sameer needs to pull back a couple of points here.

10:16 (IST)15 SEP 2017

7-9, now in favour of the Korean. 

10:14 (IST)15 SEP 2017

6-7 in favour of Son. There seems to be a slight change in tactic in the Korean's game and it's working.

10:12 (IST)15 SEP 2017

5-5. Neither is giving an inch of space to the other, such an intense match.

10:11 (IST)15 SEP 2017

4-4. Sameer had a one-point lead but Son smashes that hard into the corner to level the score.

10:10 (IST)15 SEP 2017

3-3. Again, that's very good from Sameer. Two good smashes!

10:09 (IST)15 SEP 2017

2-2. Gritty game so far.

10:08 (IST)15 SEP 2017

1-0. Sameer sets up the smash and takes it well.

10:07 (IST)15 SEP 2017

That was some show by Sameer! Incredible defending throughout the game and he took his chances when they came by. Doesn't look intimidated by the local favourite at all. Second game, now. Love all. Let's go!

10:05 (IST)15 SEP 2017

22-20! Sameer wins the game. Son thought he had won the point but the umpire judges that he had hit the shuttle before it had crossed the net.

10:04 (IST)15 SEP 2017

21-20. Game point for Sameer.

10:03 (IST)15 SEP 2017

20-20! Son lofts the shuttle high in the air, Sameer jumps and smashes it with conviction. No returning that one.

10:02 (IST)15 SEP 2017

19-20! WHAT A RALLY! Incredible show of determination from Sameer! As many as three impossible diving blocks but still Son gets the better of him! Take heart young man.
