Yes early 90's. Korean serials were not tracked, no way to be certain.

Your serial number suggests your guitar was made in the Samick factory in 1989.

Squier - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

My Squier's serial indicates my guitar was made in 1997, a stamped date in the neck pocket (on the guitar's body) says "Sept 97". Perhaps yours has a similar indicator.
