Geomryun Kim (died 24 August 579)(r.576 - 579), whose name as king was Jinji, was the twenty-fifth monarch of the ancient Korean kingdom of Silla. His wife was Lady Jido of the Park clan.

In fact, Geomryun (as second royal prince) was an usurper of the throne, reigning from September of 576 to August of 579 as King Jinji. He was overthrown by a coalition of nobles led or at least represented by Lady Mishil, a high-ranking official and his own concubine. According to Mishil and her allies, the true chosen successor of King Jinheung was his grandson, Prince Baekjong (son of the first royal prince, Dongryun), who became King Jinpyeong of Silla.

Jinji's son, Kim Yongsu, married Jingpyeong's daughter, Princess Cheonmyeong. Their eldest son (Jinji's grandson), Kim Chunchu, would eventually become King Muyeol of Silla.
