Korea drew 2-2 with Honduras in its second group match of this year's FIFA U-20 World Cup in Mendoza, Argentina on Thursday.
Korea conceded a penalty goal to David Ochoa in the 22nd minute, but just three minutes later, Ochoa was himself sent off.
Despite having an advantage in the number of players against the 10-man Honduran squad, Korea struggled and even allowed one more goal in the 50th minute.
Things improved for Korea in the 58th minute, when Kim Yong-hak netted the team's first goal, and Park Seung-ho equalized five minutes later.
Korea remained on the offensive until the end, but to no avail, tying the match.
The tournament features six groups of four countries, and the top two finishers from each group and four best third-place teams will advance to the knockout stage.
Korea is grouped with France, Gambia and Honduras. Securing four points so far with a win and a draw, Korea will face Gambia on Sunday.
