Design work on the KTX-2 began in 1992 with support from Lockheed as part of the F-16C/D offset deal. From the Flight report in Hesham's initial post it looks as though Rockwell were also involved.
The design in the pictures shown in this thread interestingly show a high-mounted wing, the original design had a mid-mounted with but otherwise looked identical.

Samsung had sought partners and Dassault and Daimler-Benz as well as BAe were possible contenders for co-operation.

The KTX-2 had a wingspan of 7.8m (25ft 7in), length 13.7m (45ft), planned max speed of Mach 1.4 and range with max fuel 1,850nm (1,150 miles).

Hyundai proposed MAKO as other candidates of KTX-II.

Finally, KTX-II was decided as F-16 based F404 engined trainer.

Ironically, Samsung, Hyundai, and Daewoo are combined as KAI when Korea suffered economic crisis at end of 1990's
