Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) control region (16024-576) sequences were generated from 281 individuals from South Korea. Robotic liquid handling, a redundant sequencing strategy, and a series of quality control checks were implemented to ensure the high quality of the dataset. This population sample showed a low random match probability (0.25 %) and high genetic diversity (0.9933). The haplogroup breakdown was consistent with previous studies describing Korean mtDNA variation. The 224 unique haplotypes (33 shared) presented will supplement the data already publically available.
