CareerEdit

Jung Kyung-eun began her career competing in singles, but now concentrates on doubles. She has attained the most success with her women's doubles partner Kim Ha-na. In April 2012, they won their first major title at the 2012 India Open.[4] In the mixed doubles she has recently partnered with Kim Ki-jung; however, they have not achieved the same level of results as they have had in doubles with their respective genders.

At the 2012 Summer Olympics, Jung and her partner Kim Ha-na, along with Ha Jung-eun and Kim Min-jung of South Korea, Wang Xiaoli and Yu Yang of China, and Meiliana Jauhari and Greysia Polii of Indonesia were disqualified from the competition for "not using one's best efforts to win a match" and "conducting oneself in a manner that is clearly abusive or detrimental to the sport" following matches the previous evening during which they were accused of trying to lose in order to manipulate the draw.[5] Jung and her partner Kim Ha-na played against China's Wang Xiaoli and Yu Yang.[6] South Korea filed an appeal to the Badminton World Federation at the Olympics, but it was rejected.[5]

Jung competed at the 2014 Asian Games, and won the bronze medal together with the national women's team.[7]

At the 2016 Olympics she and doubles partner Shin Seung-chan won the bronze medal.[8]

In 2017, she helped the Korean national team to win the world team championships at the Sudirman Cup.[9][10]
