The Korean bellflower (Campanula takesimana, Korean: 섬초롱꽃, seomchorongkkot) is a species of bellflower. It bears pink to white flowers. There are several cultivars.

The Korean herbal root, doraji (Korean: 도라지), does not come from this plant, but rather from the balloon flower (Platycodon grandiflorus), although do-ra-ji is usually translated from Korean as "bellflower".
