Chung Hae-won (Hangul: 정해원; Hanja: 丁海遠, 1 July 1959 – 1 May 2020) was a South Korean football player and coach.

International career

After winning the 1978 AFC Youth Championship as a member of the national under-20 team, Chung played as a left winger or a striker for senior national team. He scored two crucial goals to give South Korea a 2–1 win over North Korea in the semi-finals of the 1980 AFC Asian Cup, sending his team to the final.

Chung was selected for the national team for the 1988 Summer Olympics. However, he was injured during the first match against Soviet Union, and had to finish his competition early. He also participated as an attacking midfielder in the 1990 FIFA World Cup, but had difficulty in showing impressive performance.
