Korea has advanced to the Super Round of the World Baseball Softball Confederation Premier 12, which is taking place on Monday to Saturday in Japan.
The top two teams from each of the three groups in the opening round compete in the six-team Super Round. They are Mexico and the U.S. from Group A, Japan and Chinese Taipei from Group B, and Korea and Australia from Group C.
Korea faces the U.S. on Monday, Chinese Taipei on Tuesday, Mexico on Friday and Japan on Saturday. The two teams who advanced from the same group do not compete in the Super Round.
In the opening round last week, Korea completed a clean sweep, beating Australia 5-0, Canada 3-1 and Cuba 7-0. The finals round will be held at the Tokyo Dome on Nov. 17.
The Premier 12 serves as the qualifying event for next year's Olympic Games in Tokyo. Korea must beat Australia and Chinese Taipei to secure a ticket assigned to Asia and Oceania.
