The Hankyoreh (hangul:한겨레) is a daily newspaper in South Korea.

It claims to be "independent from the powers that be and the government".

Hankyoreh was established as a liberal alternative in a medium traditionally dominated by conservative and center-right newspapers. It was founded by journalists who fought against dictatorship on 15 May 1988 and has more than 60,000 citizen shareholders, none of whom have more than 1 percent of the share. With a circulation of some 600,000, it is the fourth largest after "Chosun Ilbo", "JoongAng Ilbo", and "Dong-a Ilbo", which are all right-leaning. Its core readership is intellectuals and people in their 20s and 30s. It has a web edition in English.
