Based on the number of overall medals won, South Korea is a major force among basketball teams of FIBA Asia. The team has won a record number of 24 medals at the FIBA Asia Championship. Furthermore, South Korea is the only nation that has qualified for this event every year since it was first held in 1960.

Initiation (1947–1951)

In 1947, two years after the establishment of the People's Republic of Korea, the Korea Basketball Association joined the International Federation of Basketball (FIBA) and sent its national teams to FIBA-sponsored events. Only one year later, the team already celebrated its first major accomplishment at the 1948 Summer Olympics, when it finished 8th, better than any other Asian nation, and ahead of teams such as Canada, Argentina, and Italy.

Steady improvements (1952–1968)

At the 1954 Asian Games, for the first time ever, South Korea finished in the Final Four of a major international basketball tournament in Asia. The team slowly improved its position within Asia almost every year and qualified for the Basketball World Cup several times.

Golden years (1969–1970)

In 1969 and 1970, the team enjoyed a brief period to shine, when it won the 1969 Asian Championship and the 1970 Asian Games and ultimately qualified for the 1970 FIBA World Championship. As the only Asian team that had remained in the championship, South Korea finished ahead of Australia (champion of FIBA Oceania) and Egypt (champion of FIBA Africa) and showed its best performance ever at this event. Korea's Shin Dong-Pa dominated all scorers at the 1970 FIBA World Cup as he averaged 32.6 points per game, almost 13 points more than the runner up, Davis Peralta, from Panama.

Asian elite position behind China (1971–2007)

At the Asian Championship, South Korea stayed among the top three teams at 21 straight events, a record that is still unmatched until today.

At the 1996 Olympics, Hyun Joo-Yup averaged 16.6 points through the entire tournament.

At the 2005 FIBA Asia Championship, South Korea's medal-winning streak finally ended when they lost to Qatar at the 3rd place game . Between 1975 and 2005, South Korea was the only nation besides the Philippines that was able to seriously challenge China's dominance. It interrupted China's championship winning streak in 1997, when it defeated its dominant neighbor in the semifinals and ultimately won the crown as 1997 Champion of Asia.

At the 2007 FIBA Asia Championship, South Korea was able to go on a streak, and won the first 5 games. Because of the "four centers" Ha Seung-jin (221 cm), Kim Joo-sung (205 cm), Lee Dong-jun (202 cm), and Kim Min-soo (200 cm), South Korea had the tournament's highest 2-point field goal percentage (61%). South Korea was also a team that had a strong back court with Kim Seung-hyun (179 cm), Yang Dong-geun (182 cm), Kim Dong-woo (198 cm), and Choi Jin-soo (205 cm), who guaranteed that the team was in the tournaments top-3 in free throw percentage (70.6) and assists per game (11.5). All these players helped their team to win the bronze medal once again.

Emergence of West Asian competition (2008–2018)

In the modern era, South Korea's competition from West Asia intensified as countries such as Jordan, Qatar, Lebanon, and especially Iran improved their basketball programs. South Korea is still considered one of Asia's major teams but its position among the top three teams in Asia is not guaranteed anymore. In 2014, the team qualified for the Basketball World Cup for the first time in almost 20 years. Even though the team was eliminated in the first round, the qualification itself has been a success and provided much needed global exposure. Most of the players that played at the 2014 World Cup returned for the 2014 Asian Games where they helped secure the gold medal on home soil.

Former Jeonju KCC Egis manager Hur Jae took over as the national team coach in 2016. They reached the play-offs of the 2017 FIBA Asia Cup and won the bronze medal. At the 2018 Asian Games, South Korea was unable to defend their tournament gold medal due to key veteran players being injured or not in peak condition due surgery. The public outcry, coupled by accusations that Hur had showed favoritism by selecting both his sons, prompted Hur to resign in September. Hur's former assistant Kim Sang-shik took over as the new coach.

2019 FIBA World Cup and generational change (2019–present)

Under Kim Sang-shik, the South Korean team secured their place at the 2019 FIBA Basketball World Cup. Kim also began introducing younger players into the squad on a more regular basis. However, Kim decided on a more experienced squad, with half the players selected aged 30 and above and Heo Hoon being the youngest player at 24. South Korea struggled with injury problems to key players during the tournament but ended their losing streak at the World Cup. They recorded their first win at the World Cup in 25 years by winning their last game of the tournament, a 80-71 win over the Ivory Coast.

More signs of a "generational change" were visible as Kim called-up a squad comprising only of players born in the 1990's for a 2022 FIBA Asia Cup qualifier against Indonesia. However, the COVID-19 pandemic disrupted much of 2020 as the closing of international borders and government-mandated quarantine regulations discouraged KBL teams from releasing valuable players to the national team, prompting a conflict between the Korean Basketball League (KBL) and the Korean Basketball Association (KBA). Kim resigned in late January 2021, citing his frustration over being caught in between the KBL and KBA and the failure of all parties to come to a resolution. Cho Sang-hyun took over in September 2021 and is expected to remain in charge until the 2023 FIBA Basketball World Cup.

Oceania and Egypt champion of FIBA Africa and showed its best performance ever at this event Korea s Shin Dong Pa dominated all scorers at the 1970 FIBA World Cup as he averaged 32 6 points per game almost 13 points more than the runner up Davis Peralta from Panama Asian elite position behind China 1971 2007 Edit At the Asian Championship South Korea stayed among the top three teams at 21 straight events a record that is still unmatched until today At the 1996 Olympics Hyun Joo Yup averaged 16 6 points through the entire tournament 4 At the 2005 FIBA Asia Championship South Korea s medal winning streak finally ended when they lost to Qatar at the 3rd place game Between 1975 and 2005 South Korea was the only nation besides the Philippines that was able to seriously challenge China s dominance It interrupted China s championship winning streak in 1997 when it defeated its dominant neighbor in the semifinals and ultimately won the crown as 1997 Champion of Asia At the 2007 FIBA Asia Championship South Korea was able to go on a streak and won the first 5 games Because of the four centers Ha Seung jin 221 cm Kim Joo sung 205 cm Lee Dong jun 202 cm and Kim Min soo 200 cm South Korea had the tournament s highest 2 point field goal percentage 61 South Korea was also a team that had a strong back court with Kim Seung hyun 179 cm Yang Dong geun 182 cm Kim Dong woo 198 cm and Choi Jin soo 205 cm who guaranteed that the team was in the tournaments top 3 in free throw percentage 70 6 and assists per game 11 5 5 All these players helped their team to win the bronze medal once again Emergence of West Asian competition 2008 2018 Edit In the modern era South Korea s competition from West Asia intensified as countries such as Jordan Qatar Lebanon and especially Iran improved their basketball programs South Korea is still considered one of Asia s major teams but its position among the top three teams in Asia is not guaranteed anymore In 2014 the team qualified for the Basketball World Cup for the first time in almost 20 years Even though the team was eliminated in the first round the qualification itself has been a success and provided much needed global exposure Most of the players that played at the 2014 World Cup returned for the 2014 Asian Games where they helped secure the gold medal on home soil Former Jeonju KCC Egis manager Hur Jae took over as the national team coach in 2016 They reached the play offs of the 2017 FIBA Asia Cup and won the bronze medal At the 2018 Asian Games South Korea was unable to defend their tournament gold medal due to key veteran players being injured or not in peak condition due surgery 6 The public outcry coupled by accusations that Hur had showed favoritism by selecting both his sons prompted Hur to resign in September 7 Hur s former assistant Kim Sang shik took over as the new coach 8 2019 FIBA World Cup and generational change 2019 present Edit Under Kim Sang shik the South Korean team secured their place at the 2019 FIBA Basketball World Cup Kim also began introducing younger players into the squad on a more regular basis 9 10 However Kim decided on a more experienced squad with half the players selected aged 30 and above and Heo Hoon being the youngest player at 24 South Korea struggled with injury problems to key players during the tournament but ended their losing streak at the World Cup They recorded their first win at the World Cup in 25 years by winning their last game of the tournament a 80 71 win over the Ivory Coast 11 12 More signs of a generational change were visible as Kim called up a squad comprising only of players born in the 1990 s for a 2022 FIBA Asia Cup qualifier against Indonesia 13 However the COVID 19 pandemic disrupted much of 2020 as the closing of international borders and government mandated quarantine regulations discouraged KBL teams from releasing valuable players to the national team prompting a conflict between the Korean Basketball League KBL and the Korean Basketball Association KBA 14 15 Kim resigned in late January 2021 citing his frustration over being caught in between the KBL and KBA and the failure of all parties to come to a resolution 16 17 Cho Sang hyun took over in September 2021 and is expected to remain in charge until the 2023 FIBA Basketball World Cup Competitions EditOlympic Games Edit Summer
