This is a list of Korean family names, in Hangul alphabetical order. Note: (S) denotes South Korea. (N) denotes North Korea.

The most common Korean surname (particularly in South Korea) is Kim, followed by Lee and Park. Together, these three surnames are held by around half of the ethnic Korean population. There are only about 250 Korean family names currently in use. However, each family name is divided into one or more clans and in order to identify a person's family name, the identification of a person's clan is needed.
