The South Korean national ice hockey team (Korean: 대한민국 아이스하키 국가대표팀 Daehanminguk Aiseuhaki Gukgadaepyotim) is the national men's ice hockey team of the Republic of Korea (South Korea). They are currently ranked 21st in the IIHF World Rankings and currently compete in the World Championship top division tournament. The team's most successful campaign thus far was a second place finish in the 2017 Division I Group A tournament and thus qualifying for the top division in 2018. They competed in their first Winter Olympics in 2018 in Pyeongchang as the host nation.

History

South Korea at the 2017 World Championship Division IA tournament in Ukraine. They finished second and earned promotion to the 2018 IIHF World Championship Top Division tournament for the first time.

South Korea first participated in the World Championship in 1979, playing in Pool C, the third level of the tournament. They did not return until 1982, again in Pool C, and became a regular participant in 1986. They remained at the Division I level, the second tier of the World Championship, from 2010 until 2017, when they earned a promotion to the 2018 World Championship.

Upon being named the host country for the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, the South Korean team began efforts to steadily improve themselves in order to be competitive with the other teams expected at the tournament. Several North American players playing for teams in South Korea were offered South Korean citizenship, thus allowing them to play at the Olympics.[1]
