Greenbank fought back from sixth place at the halfway stage to set a new personal best of one minute 55.85 seconds in Gwangju.
Russia’s Evgeny Rylov won gold, while American Ryan Murphy took silver.
“To be up in the medals at a World Championship is a dream come true really,” Greenbank, 21, said.
“I went in there quite relaxed, but confident, and I just stuck to my race plan and it seems to have paid off.
“I knew if I had a good last 50m I’d be in for a good swim – it’s quite difficult to put it into words.”
