When you think China will outplay Korea 3 sets to nil, Korea stun them with great serve and quality defense. I was hoping more from the Chinese reception and out of system attacks.

Its similar with Japan, they played so well and 2 losses so far. Otherwise, China is in main draw anyway (Pool A), even if they lost.
