The 2012 K-League was the 13th season of the K-League since its establishment in 1983. The 2012 season was known as Hyundai Oilbank K-League 2012 due to the competition's sponsorship by Hyundai Oilbank. Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors were the defending champions, having won their second title the previous season.

After 30 matches, the league split into two sections of eight teams each, with teams playing every other team in their section twice at home and away. The exact matches were determined upon the league table at the time of the split. This system was temporarily enforced for the 2012 season.[1]
