The Korean baseball team, led by coach Lee Kang-cheol, lost 4-13 in the first round of the 2023 World Baseball Classic (WBC) held at Tokyo Dome, Japan on the 10th.

Korea lost 7-8 in the first game of the tournament against Australia on the 9th, and then completely collapsed against Japan, falling to the bottom of Group B, and the possibility of advancing to the second round became slim.
