The Jeon-Antonsen rivalry stands at one win apiece – the Dane had defeated the current world No.45 in the group stage of the Thomas Cup in 2021 in his hometown of Aarhus.
Jeon’s victory, which came a year later at the same competition in Bangkok, had put Korea 2-1 ahead in the quarterfinals before Denmark came back to win 3-2.
The Danes, however, lost by the same scoreline to eventual winners India in the semis.
