Player Profile

Kim is another graduate of the Korean youth system, he played in the 2005 Under-17 World Cup and scored against the Ivory Coast in the group stages. He played in all four matches as North Korea narrowly lost to Brazil in extra-time at the quarter-final stage.

He also played all three matches at the 2007 Under-20 World Cup but featured in just one senior qualifying match back in October 2007 against Mongolia.
