Here is the event opening with some paparazzo:
This game was not so difficult as the last one. Dowon chose the Chinese opening by playing black and after approx. 50 moves she had an advantage. Song Ronghui couldn't do anything and resigned at move 205.
The next opponent could be Yoshida Mika or Suzuki Ayumi.
