It takes place in the second half of September every year in the Seoul Olympic Park Tennis Center, Seoul.

Since its inception, the event has been well attended by the likes of Kiki Bertens, Jelena Ostapenko, Lara Arruabarrena, Karolina Pliskova, Caroline Wozniacki, Maria Sharapova, among others.

We can expect the 2020 WTA Seoul to be along the same lines.

Player List for the 2020 Korea Open
The player list for the upcoming WTA Seoul will be released at a later date. For the 2019 WTA Seoul, Greek No. 1 Maria Sakkari led the draw. She was joined by some other emerging, young talent on the circuit as mentioned in the list of players for the women’s singles draw below.
Maria Sakkari, Ekaterina Alexandrova, Karolina Muchova, Magda Linette, Ajla Tomljanovic, Polona Hercog, Margarita Gasparyan, Yafan Wang, Jelena Ostapenko, Timea Babos, Jill Teichmann, Kirsten Flipkens, Ana Bogdan, among others.
What Happened at the 2019 Korea Open?
The final saw the third and fourth seeds Karolina Muchova and Magda Linette fight for top honours and it was the Czech player Muchova who came away on top. She won the final 6-1, 6-1 to lift her first ever trophy on the WTA circuit following a defeat at the Prague Open earlier in the year.
This was after they had gotten the better of the eighth seeded Wang Yafan and second seeded Ekaterina Alexandrova in the semifinals before that. Both those matches ended in straight sets but weren’t as straightforward as that with both losing semifinalists having a good number of chances. Top seeded Maria Sakkari withdrew from the tournament before round one.
In 2018, this tennis tournament in Seoul was won by Kiki Bertens, who defeated Tomljanovic in the final in three sets. It was among her better tournaments of the year, where she moved past some strong opponents like Maria Sakkri, Evgeniya Rodina, and Dalila Jakupovic.
As for Tomljanovic, she had a superb run in the competition – one of the key highlights of her entire tennis career, where she defeated Su-Wei Hsieh, Mandy Minella, and Alison Van Uytvanck. Apart from them, Jelena Ostapenko also featured in the tournament as the top seed but lost in the second round to Alexandrova of Russia.
