South Korea Kit: Through the years

Design: The Taegeuk warriors may have frequently altered their short colour over the course of their World Cup history, but a scarlet red shirt has been a constant throughout. Blue and white are the standard secondary colours, with the palette based upon the nation's Taegeukgi flag.

Short History: The Republic of Korea's first outing at the competition came in 1954, when a classically designed red shirt with white collar was combined with white shorts and red socks. It would be their last appearance until 1986, when all red with a white V-neck collar was the order of the day—a design which would remain four years later. While 1994 brought out the country's artistic side, with a bright chequered design added to the left shoulder of the shirt, it would only be in 1998 that the one-colour design was ousted with the addition of blue shorts. In every tournament since, however, the famous red shirt has been partnered with white shorts and red socks, in a design that has become the modern standard for South Korea.

The greatest kit: A bright red wave hit the 2002 World Cup, as Korea hosted the competition in style and reached the semifinals. Complete with white trim, blue shorts and red socks, the kit bore witness to the greatest moments of Korea's football history thus far.
