The 2012 K-League is the thirtieth season of the K-League since its establishment in 1983. The 2012 season is known as Hyundai Oilbank K-League 2012 due to the competition's sponsorship by Hyundai Oilbank. Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors is the defending champions, having won their second title.

After 30 matches, the league split into two sections of eight teams each, with teams playing every other team in their section twice at home and away. The exact matches were determined upon the league table at the time of the split. This system will be temporarily enforced for the 2012 season.[1]
