Jeongak (literally "proper music") is that category of Korean music which is considered classical, as distinct from minsogak which is folk music. The category has traditionally been associated with the upper classes.

The best known pieces of jeongak are Sujecheon and the suite entitled Yeongsan Hoesang (영산회상; ). Another commonly performed jeongak suite is called Cheonnyeonmanse (천년만세; ).
