According to Nike: Korea national team player Myung-Won Seo unveiled the kit at Gwanghwamun Square, Seoul, South Korea.

Combining Nike’s finest performance innovations with powerful national symbols, the new home kit for Korea’s national football team captures their renowned tenacity and spirit on the field, and prepares them to compete in Brasil this summer.

Nike’s design team achieved this by using the Taegeuk, the yin and yang circle symbol found at the center of the Korean flag, to reflect the balanced and harmonious team spirit of the Korean national team. The vibrant red jersey shows the interlocking shapes of the Taegeuk at the top of each sleeve in blue. These shapes give the jersey a modern appearance and match the contours of the players’ bodies.
