It was formally established in 2001 as part of a general restructuring at KEPCO, although KEPCO had opened its first nuclear plant at Kori in Busan in 1977. The first commercial operation of Kori nuclear #1 was held 1978.
The company also operates internationally, with offices in New York, Atlanta, Paris and Tokyo. The current CEO is Jong-Shin Kim. As of 2008, it had about 7,500 employees and sales revenue in KRW 5.8 trillion (approximately US$7 billion). The current international credit ratings are A2 stable/A stable/A+ stable(Moody's/S&P/Fitch), which are one of the top in global utility industry.
In October 2013 a former chief executive of KHNP, amongst about 100 people, was indicted for falsifying nuclear component safety documents.
