Jasenko Sabitović (born 29 May 1973) is a Korean football player who played for NK Zagreb, Pohang Steelers, Seongnam Ilhwa Chunma, Suwon Samsung Bluewings, Chunnam Dragons, NK Karlovac. He became naturalized as a South Korean citizen in 2004 and while playing there was known as Lee Savik.

Although he was born in Tuzla, SR Bosnia and Herzegovina, SFR Yugoslavia, he played for the Croatian under-21 team because his mother is a Bosnian Croat. He won six international caps with the team in 1995. Because of this, he was eligible to play for Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia and South Korea.

He first came to South Korea in 1998, when he joined the Pohang Steelers from Croatian First League side NK Zagreb.

After he was released from Suwon Samsung Bluewings, there was a rumour that he would move to Ghanaian league. He finally joined Chunnam Dragons. He played, or will play in AFC Champions League in every K-League club he joined.
