King Jun of Gojoseon was a king of the Gija Joseon. He was succeeded by Wiman, whose usurpation of the throne began the Wiman Joseon period of Gojoseon.

Overthrowing and exile into Mahan[edit]

Wiman entered Gojoseon as a refugee, and submitted to King Jun. Jun granted Wiman's request to serve as a commander of the western borders in Beonjoseon. However, sometime between 194 and 193 BC, Wiman led a revolt, and chased Jun down into Mahan territory, which encompassed the Korean peninsula.

Jun's last surname is uncertain. While some people say Ki some people say Han. Cheongju Han clan claims to be a direct descendant of him.
