After drawing blanks in their first two events, the Koreans finally made good their campaign by leading the Men's Trios first block with 1957. The trio led from start to finish, first off with a 672 opening game and followed it up with 662 and 623.
The Korean threesome only led by a slender lead of 11 pins, ahead of Sweden's first trio of Jesper Svensson, Markus Jansson and Pontus Andersson, who trailed the leader throughout the first block and settled for second with 1946.
Team USA's Chris Via, Jakob Butturff and anchored by AJ Johnson finished with 1908, a further 38 pins adrift in third. Venezuela's Rogelio Felie, Luis Edcuardo Rovaina and Ildemaro Ruiz took fourth spot after a highest second game of 713, for a total of 1892.
Italy's Marco Reviglio, Antonino Florentino and Nicola Pongolini completed the top five with a total of 1848.
