Defender Hussain Fadel scored an equalizer in the 54th minute as Kuwait held South Korea to a 1-1 draw in searing conditions for their World Cup Asian qualifier.
Fadel's shot canceled out Park Chu-young's goal which had given the visitors the lead in the 9th minute Tuesday, when temperatures reached an energy-sapping 44 Celsius (111 Fahrenheit) at Peace and Friendship Stadium.
Park scored three goals in South Korea's opening 6-0 win over Lebanon last Friday, a margin which gives his team top spot on goal differential in Group B.
South Korea, which reached the second round at the last World Cup and was a semifinalist in 2002, is at home to United Arab Emirates on Oct. 11.
