The style of the Korean team is characterized by quick combinations and mental power, but recently the team has been trying to add power and height to match the trend in women's volleyball.
Korea's results in recent major tournaments were not satisfactory for the team and its fans. They finished eighth at the 2007 World Cup, fourth at the 2007 Asian Championship, fifth in the 2006 Asian Games and 13th at the 2006 World Championship.
Most disappointingly, the team failed to qualify for the 2008 Olympics.
On the plus side, the team was second in the inaugural AVC Cup in 2008.
In 2009, the team was 12th in the World Grand Prix and fourth at the Asian Women's Volleyball Championship.
However, in 2010, the team improved, finishing 13th in the World Championship and second at the Asian Games in China before following it up with a ninth place finish at the 2011 World Grand Prix
Top spiker Kim Yeon-Koung remains a key player, while some of the younger players have shown they are ready to fight.
