This is a list of Wikipedia articles on Korea-related people, places, things, and concepts. For help on how to use this list, see the introduction below.
You can help keep this list up to date by adding titles of new or existing articles which are not yet listed here. (Before you add an article, however, please consult the Korean naming conventions.)
This is an alphabetical list. For a categorical organization of Korean topics, please see the Categories section below.
Red links are to articles that will hopefully be added in the very near future. For help, please see Naming conventions at the bottom of this page.

Place names are romanized according to the official romanization system of the country the place is a part of. Thus, North Korean place names use McCune-Reischauer Romanization (except that ŏ, ŭ, and the apostrophe (') are not used in article titles, although they are shown on this page), while South Korean place names use the Revised Romanization of Korean.
Personal and corporate names
People are always alphabetized by their family name, regardless of whether the person concerned puts his/her family name first or last. If it is unclear which is the family name and which the given name (for example, Nam June Paik, since Nam and Paik are both family names and there's no telltale hyphen in the name) please check under both names. Personal and corporate names (Syngman Rhee; Samsung) are generally romanized according to the nameholder's preference, or to the spelling most frequently encountered in English. If there is no dominant English spelling, Revised Romanization is to be preferred, but see also Wikipedia:Naming conventions (Korean).
Monarchs are listed in the following format:
- Title Name (the Great) of Kingdom
For example: Queen Seondeok of Silla; King Sejong the Great of Joseon; Emperor Gojong of Korea; HIH Crown Prince Yi Seok .
See Rulers of Korea for a list of monarchs with their names formatted as above.
