Since then, they have garnered eight more BWF World Tour, Super Series, and Grand Prix titles. The last one they took was the Super 750-level French Open in 2021, defeating in two games fellow Koreans Kim So-Yeong and Kong Hee-Yong for the top prize.
Lee So-Hee & Shin Seung-Chan’s plans in BWF
Both Lee and Shin were in the 2016 Uber Cup silver medal squad as well as the 2020 contingent that reached the semifinals. They are hoping that this May in Thailand they and their team would do better and lift South Korea’s second tournament championship.
