In the men's doubles semi-final, top seeds Koo Kien Keat and Tan Boon Heong will play against fourth-seeded Carsten Mogensen and Mathias Boe while Ko Sung-hyun/Yoo Yeon-seong, who defeated second-seeded Lee Yong-dae/Jung Jae-sung in the second round, will compete against Japanese Hirokatsu Hashimoto and Noriyasu Hirata.
