Korea's Lee Hyun-Il is known for his graceful and spectacular swift movement and his fierce attack, he was badminton's top-ranked men's singles player from early 2000's through mid-2000's. He was beaten in the semifinals at the 2008 Olympics and suffered another heartbroken lost in the bronze medal playoff in the 2012 London.

The presence of the left handed charming Lee Hyun-Il has attracted a lot of attentions from his fans in New Zealand. He is considered as one of the best players to ever play here in New Zealand Open, and is garnering plenty of support from the expatriate Korean community in Auckland.
