The South Korean women's national ice hockey team is controlled by the Korea Ice Hockey Association. In 2017, the team was promoted to Division IB after winning the Division IIA World Women's Ice Hockey Championships. The team is currently ranked 16th in the world.[1]

The South Korean women's national team competed in the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics after being granted automatic entry as the host country by the IIHF.[2] In an effort to boost their competitiveness for the Olympics, the program has recruited several North American players with Korean ancestry.[3] In January 2018, it was announced that a unified Korean team would take part in the games, including players from North Korea.[4]

A movie about the South Korean women's ice hockey team was released in South Korea in August 2016.[5]
