Along with Hwang, Park Ji-won also added another gold for Team Korea, as he won the men’s 1,500-meter race at 2 minutes and 26.025 seconds. In this race, Lee June-seo won a bronze by clocking 2 minutes and 26.546 seconds.

Team Korea won bronze in the mixed 2,000-meter relay race.

The second leg of the ISU World Cup Short Track will be completed today. After this, they will be given about a two-week break and continue the series, starting on Nov. 29. The third leg of the ISU World Cup will be held in Nagoya, Japan.
