Thanks to the draw, the Indian team, currently ranked sixth in the world, held onto the top spot in Pool A by goal difference over 12-ranked Korea.
The top two teams from each pool will qualify for the semi-finals.
India crushed Singapore 13-0 in the opener before notching a 6-0 win over Malaysia.
Both teams looked to score from the word go but the Koreans had the first opportunity of the match when Cho Hyejin shot at the goal. However, Deep Grace Ekka effected a fine save to keep India from going behind.
The Koreans, though, took the lead minutes later as Cho Hyejin scored off a penalty stroke after she was fouled by Udita inside the circle.
The first quarter ended with Korea 1-0 ahead with the Indians lacking the finishing skills upfront.
Desperate to find the equaliser, India earned a few penalty corners but none of them resulted in a goal as the first half ended with South Korea leading by a goal.
The third quarter also went along similar lines until Navneet found the back of the net off a penalty corner.
The two teams tried hard to take the lead in the fourth and final quarter but their efforts did not translate into goals, as they shared honours.
India failed to convert a penalty corner towards the end and they also had a player advantage at that stage of the game.
