Young-Pyo played the full match at right-back as Manchester United's Park Ji-Sung levelled Thierry Henry's first half opener with just 10 minutes remaining.
The draw means South Korea top Group G with four points from two games with France second but only on two points. Switzerland and Togo have played one game each and face each other on Monday.
Young-Pyo will be back in action with the final group game against Switzerland on Friday.
The next action for our Spurs contingent in Germany is on Tuesday when England take on Sweden in Cologne, kick-off 8pm.
Lee Young-Pyo helped South Korea pick up a vital point against France in the World Cup on Sunday night.
