The lead ship, named Pohang, was delivered to RoKN in 1984 and the last in 1993 totaling 22 ships. These ships can perform anti-submarine (ASW), anti-surface (ASuW), and anti-aircraft (AAW) warfare in the littoral environment.

The Pohang-class corvettes propulsion system combines two diesel engines for cruise with one LM2500 gas turbine. The ASW corvettes were provided with hull-mounted PHS-32 or SQS-58 sonar systems, torpedo tubes and depth charges. They are equipped with two or one 76mm OTO Melara naval guns. The AAW corvettes feature two 40mm anti-aircraft guns and fire control system. Two MM38 Exocet anti-ship missiles were provided to each ASuW Pohang-class corvette.
