The SK Wyverns won their first Korean Series title in 2007. Prior to that point they had borne the unwanted distinction of being the only team in the Korea Baseball Organization never to have won a title. The following month, at the Asia Series, they scored Korea's first victory over Japan in the history of that event (in a preliminary roun-robin game) behind the arm of Kwang-hyun Kim.

In 2008, under the motto "V[ictory]2 and Never-Ending History," they launched an aggressive campaign to repeat as champions. In the process, they posted an 82-40 regular season record en route to a first-place finish, breaking the league's record for most wins in a season. SK then went on to win the 2008 Korean Series. They won the 2010 Korean Series in a sweep of the Samsung Lions.

The team is based in Incheon, Gyeonggi Province. Their home field is Munhak Baseball Stadium. The team was created in a 2000 expansion of the KBO. They are owned by SK, Korea's largest cell phone carrier.
