Song Sera had a fierce battle with Sun Yiwen in the third round, which started with a score of 6-6.
Sun Yi-wen took the lead by scoring two consecutive points,
Song Ser-ra followed up by one point, bringing the score to 8-9.
At this time, she delayed the game by suddenly checking the equipment when Sun Yi-wen had 1 minute and 16 seconds left until the end of the game,
but there was no protest from the Korean team.
Meanwhile, the Chinese home crowd chanted “Fighting, Sun Yiwen!”
It was a situation where the atmosphere could have been over,
but Song Sera succeeded in tying the score at 9-9 as soon as the game resumed,
then dragged Sun Yi-wen towards her and made a surprise attack to make it 10-9.
Song Sera widened the lead to 2 points with 26 seconds left and maintained the lead until the end of the game.
With this, Song Sera won a medal in her first Asian Games appearance.
In the Asian Games, fencing does not hold a separate match for 3rd and 4th place,
but if a team loses in the semifinals, a joint bronze medal is awarded.
Choi In-do, who also competed in the individual event,
won an easy 15-7 victory over Pichyova Ulyana (Kazakhstan) and advanced to the semifinals,
securing a bronze medal.
Choi In-jeong, who won consecutive bronze medals at the 2014 Incheon Games and the 2018 Jakarta/Palembang Games,
is determined to change the color of the medal this time.
If Song Sera and Choi In-jeong defeat their respective opponents in the semifinals, the Taegeuk Warriors final match will be held, and Korean fencing will secure gold and silver medals in women’s epee.
