Nike has unveiled the “Home Kit” that South Korea will be rocking at World Cup 2014 in Brazil. In its traditional color scheme of red with fringes of blue, the new jersey is sleek and simple, making it great for Korean fans to wear at games/sporting events as well as for the casual sportswear fan to wear out.

According to the Nike news release:
“The Korean shirt is filled with the aspirations of a nation,” said Korean National Team midfielder SungYueng Ki. “This year in Brasil, with a shirt that expresses the balance of the yin and yang, we will look to reach new heights as a team on football’s biggest stage.”The design team also wanted to give Korea a unique collar inspired by classic Korean attire, resulting in the red collar with prominent blue piping.
Inside the back of the neck, a pennant tab features a Tuhon symbol from traditional Korean calligraphy that translates as “fighting spirit,” representing the essential quality of Korean football.
