The Green Party Korea is a political party in South Korea. The Green party was established in March, 2012. It is a continuation of the Korea Greens, created following initial discussions in 2011. The party was established in response to the Fukushima Nuclear Crisis of Japan. Green Party Korea is a member of the Global Greens and the Asia-Pacific Green Network. As a result of the party only getting 0.48% in the 19th national parliamentary election in April, 2012, the party was disbanded by the National Election Administration Office.

The Green Party Korea, together with the Basic Income Youth Network, began a two-week tour on July 6, 2015 to discover the opinions citizens in South Korea have about basic income, and to introduce the concept of basic income to the community. The party has also adopted basic income as part of their party platform.[3]
