China leads the list of nations with 13 wins, followed by Japan’s five, and Thailand’s pair of titles. South Korea has come close, finishing second seven times and third on ten occasions, but they haven’t won yet.

The event was initially set for late August to early September 2021 but got pushed back to 2022 due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Unfortunately, it was ultimately called off.
