Eight fighters competed in a single-elimination tournament. The event was won by Korea’s Choo Nam-Yul. This was one of only two victories by Korean women in 1988 taekwondo, as opposed to the men’s competition, in which seven of the eight classes were won by Koreans. Choo won the title by defeating Spain’s María Angela Naranjo in the final, after defeating Pai Yun-Yao (TPE), the 1987 World Champion, in the semi-finals.
