Korea Open (badminton)

The Korea Open is an annual badminton event that is commonly held in Seoul, South Korea. The tournament is now known as Korea Open Super Series because it became one of the BWF Super Series tournaments beginning with 2007. BWF categorised Korea Open as one of the seven BWF World Tour Super 500 events as per new BWF events structure since 2018.[1]

The tournament is organised since 1991, however the 1998 tournament was canceled due to the poor economic conditions in the country.[2]
