The South Korea women's national football team (Korean: 대한민국 여자 축구 국가대표팀; Daehanminguk Yeoja Chukgu Gukgadaepyo-Team, literally "Republic of Korea women's football national team") represents South Korea in international women's football competitions. The team is referred to as the "Korea Republic" by FIFA. Its first game was a match against Japan in 1990, which it lost 13–1. Since then, it has qualified for two FIFA World Cups, in 2003 and 2015.

Unlike the men's, due to lack investments, South Korea women's does not achieve much success. After 2015 Women's World Cup, KFA had decided to improve the women's football in South Korea.
