Sport career[edit]

At the 2012 Summer Olympics, Kim and her partner Jung Kyung-eun, along with Ha Jung-eun, Kim Min-jung, Wang Xiaoli, Yu Yang, Meiliana Jauhari and Greysia Polii were disqualified from the competition because their efforts were not focused on winning their matches, and their conduct was in a way that was harmful and violent to the sport.[2] They were also accused of trying to lose in order to manipulate the draw.[2] Kim and her partner Jung Kyung-eun played against China's Wang Xiaoli and Yu Yang.[3] South Korea filed an appeal to the Badminton World Federation at the Olympics, but it was rejected.[2]
