Lee Chung-Yong (Hangul: 이청용; Korean pronunciation: [i.tɕʰʌŋ.joŋ]; born 2 July 1988) is a South Korean footballer who plays for Premier League club Crystal Palace and the South Korean national team.

He is nicknamed "Blue Dragon", which is a literal translation of his given name "Chung-Yong", derived from Hanja, 청용(靑龍). He joined in the 2004 season and ever since his early debut at the age of 18 for the South Korean side FC Seoul in the 2006 season of K League, Lee has gathered much attention from domestic football fans of South Korea in general, particularly because in South Korean football, where rookies mostly make their entrance into professional clubs through draft system, dropping out of middle school to sign a contract with a top division football club was a very rare case.

In January 2009, The Times named Lee as one of the top 50 rising stars in football.
