If you are interested in contributing to K League United, please send an email to Info@KLeagueUnited.com.

For the vast majority of information about the league itself and each team you can visit the K-League's English website. League and team info, schedules, stats, team locations, and even some public transit info can be found there. Most importantly, there's an easy to follow breakdown of the Regular Season, The Split Round, and Promotion/Relegation Playoffs. But just in case you're curious and don't feel like clicking another link, here are the basics of the Classic Season:

Regular Season: 12 teams, each plays the other three times for a total of 33 games each. The League then splits into the Championship and Relegation Rounds.

Championship Round: 1st-6th place teams play each other once over five games weeks to determine the league champion and AFC Champions League places (1st-3rd in league).

Relegation Round: 7th-12th place teams play each other once over five games weeks to determine who will be relegated to K-League Challenge. The "winner" of the Relegation Round finishes 7th in the overall season standings regardless of point totals compared to those in the Championship Round. The 12th place team is automatically relegated while the 11th place team will play a two-legged playoff series with the winner of the Challenge playoffs. Here's an example of the 2015 Playoff Bracket.
