Germany's Yannik Paul heads into the weekend with a share of the lead at 8-under in the Korea Championship after closing with a second successive 68.

"Yesterday it was a bit windier, but today the pins were really hard. I think they're expecting quite a bit of wind over the weekend so I think they used all the hard pins today.

"The weather was really good. It was actually warmer than I thought. But yeah, the pins made it hard to get close to. And if you're on the wrong side, you have absolutely no shot. I think you've just got to stay patient and wait for your chances.

"It’s just halfway through the tournament. I know a lot of stuff can happen, so just try to focus on myself and know the things that you can't really control. Sometimes it goes your way, sometimes it doesn't. So I just try to hit good shots and then I kind of see where I end up."

Home favourite Sanghyun Park carded a 69 to take a share of the lead.

"I feel great that I could end with a birdie at the 18th hole,2 said Park. "There are two more rounds so I don’t want to get complacent.

"With the tournament being on the DP World Tour as well as the KPGA, I want to prove that Korean players can have a chance to win on the DP World Tour.

"I think other players feel the same and that is why a lot of Korean players are playing well at the moment."

Overnight leader Antoine Rozner had a difficult second round that featured two bogeys and a triple bogey at the par-4 9th and slips down into a share of third place at 7-under alongside fellow Frenchman Mike Lorenzo-Vera who shot a 65, his best round of the season .

Scots Scott Jamieson (65) and Forrest Grant (68) share fifth place at 6-under with Spain's Pablo LarrazΓ‘bal (70), France's Robin Sciot-Siegrist (68) and South Korea's Yonggu Shin (66) and Taehoon Ok (69).
