Born in 1989, Park, 34, is the youngest woman ever to take charge of a women’s national team.

He began his coaching career in 2016 as an assistant coach at Yeoju University, and after coaching his alma mater, Pohang Women’s High School, he became a full-time coach at the Korea Football Association in 2019.

Park has coached the women’s U-17 and U-20 national teams and has experience with the 2022 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup.

Since December of last year, she has been coaching the A team, led by Colin Bell, at the 2023 Women’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.

Park will be assisted by former KFA coaches Ko Hyun-bok, Kim Dae-hwan, goalkeeping coach, and Lee Ji-sung, physical coach.
