They´re programme has been improving over the past two years. They have two teams in the Asia league competing against Japanese teams (well and a Chinese one, but that one finished the season with just one point, so...) and its the players from these teams that create most of the Korean NT.

Here´s an interesint article from IIHF´s website about Korea, but it´s from 2008.

As for 2018, I doubt it, despite the improvement they are still behind even the likes of Japan and will likely return to Div IB really fast...
