Kim Min-jung (born July 29, 1986) is a badminton player representing South Korea.[1] Her name is sometimes spelled Kim Min-jeong.

As a badminton player Kim has focused on doubles with Ha Jung-eun; together they competed at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. In the past she has been paired with Hwang Ji-man and Yoo Yeon-seong in mixed doubles.

At the 2012 Summer Olympics, Kim and her partner Ha Jung-eun, along with Jung Kyung-eun and Kim Ha-na of South Korea, Wang Xiaoli and Yu Yang of China, and Meiliana Jauhari and Greysia Polii of Indonesia were disqualified from the competition for "not using one's best efforts to win a match" and "conducting oneself in a manner that is clearly abusive or detrimental to the sport" following matches the previous evening during which they were accused of trying to lose in order to manipulate the draw.[2] Kim and her partner Ha Jung-eun played against Indonesia's Meiliana Jauhari and Greysia Polii.[3] It is suspected that the Koreans emulated China so to avoid playing against another Korean team in the semi-finals; the Korean head coach Sung Han-kook said "Because they don't want to play the semi-final against each other, so we did the same. We didn't want to play the South Korean team again".[3][4] South Korea filed an appeal to the case, but it was rejected by the Badminton World Federation.[2]
