Hanwha Group (Hangul한화그룹; RRHanhwa Geurup) is one of the largest business conglomerates (chaebol) in South Korea. Founded in 1952 as Korea Explosives Co. (Hangul약주식회사; Hanja藥株式會社), the group has grown into a large multi-profile business conglomerate, with diversified holdings stretching from explosives, their original business, to retail to financial services. In 1992 the company adopted its abbreviation as the new name: "Hanwha".

The group owns Hanwha Eagles, which is a professional baseball club in South Korea. The current Chairman of Hanwha is Kim Seung-yeon.

Hanwha has 56 affiliates in South Korea alone and 226 networks (affiliates, branches and representative offices) around the world (as of June 2016). However, on the other branches, other ceos have taken root. Some include Kim Ji-Dilleon and others.
