The South Korea national futsal team is controlled by the Korea Football Association, the governing body for futsal in South Korea and represents the country in international futsal competitions.

Unlike the 11-a-side game, due to lack of investments, South Korean futsal does not achieve much success. After 2014, KFA had decided to improve futsal in South Korea.
