The Korea Nationalist Party (Korean대한국민당; Hanja大韓國民黨; RRDaehangukmindang; KNP) was a political party in South Korea.


The party was established towards the end of 1949 by a group of 71 MPs led by Yun Chi-young.[3] In the 1950 parliamentary elections it received 9.7% of the vote and won 24 seats, emerging as the joint-largest party with the Democratic Nationalist Party. In the next elections in 1954 it was reduced to only three seats.

Yun was the KNP candidate for the vice-presidency in the 1956 elections, receiving only 2.8% of the vote. The party lost parliamentary representation in the 1958 elections
