South Korea was placed in Group B along with North Korea, China, and Thailand at the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) draw for the 2024 Paris Olympics Asian second qualifying round held at the AFC House in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on the 18th.
A total of 12 countries will participate in the Asian 2nd qualifying round, which will be divided into 3 groups of 4 teams each. A total of 4 teams, including the top 3 teams in each group and the top 3 out of the 3 second-place teams, advance to the final preliminary round.

Initially, it was expected that Korea would receive a smooth grouping as it was assigned to pot 2. However, the plan was twisted when North Korea entered Port 4. North Korea is a world powerhouse in women’s football and the de facto number one in Asia, but has not been able to build up the FIFA rankings because it has not participated in international competitions in recent years, and has joined pot 4 of this tournament.
South Korea has only won 1 win (3 draws and 15 losses) in 19 head-to-head encounters with North Korea. The only one win was in 2005, 17 years ago.
China, which I met as the No. 1 pot team, is also difficult. Recently, it is evaluated that competitiveness is not the same as before, but Korea’s absolute inferiority with 4 wins, 8 draws and 29 losses in the total record. They haven’t won a single match in their last 9 matches. It is also a worrying factor that the Group B schedule of the Asian 2nd qualifying round, to which Korea belongs, is held in China.

South Korea must beat at least one team from China or North Korea to advance to the final round. Considering the objective power, it is expected that it will never be an easy match.
Even if they advance to the final qualifying round, it is difficult to guarantee that they will advance to the finals. Only two out of four teams in the final qualifying round can get a ticket to the finals. The women’s soccer at the Olympics, where only two teams across the Asian continent qualify for the finals, is considered to be a more difficult competition than the World Cup. Korea has made it to the finals three times in its career at the Women’s World Cup, and although it was confirmed early on that it would qualify for the Australia-New Zealand Women’s World Cup, which will be held this year, it has never made it to the finals at the Olympic stage.
