Choi Kyoung-hwan (born June 22, 1955) is a member of the National Assembly of South Korea in the Hannara Party. He represents the Gyeongsan-Cheongdo region of Gyeongsangbuk-do. Choi has promised to work for the extension of Daegu Subway Line 1 beyond the borders of Daegu to Gyeongsan, and to expand the Daegu Gyeongbuk Institute of Science and Technology.

Born in Gyeongsan's Sincheon-dong, Choi graduated from Daegu High School in 1975. He obtained his bachelor's in economics at Yonsei University, passing the civil service exam while enrolled for a fourth year of study in 1979. He later received his Ph.D. in economics at the University of Wisconsin–Madison, where he studied from 1987 to 1991.

His work in economics has opened up various opportunities for Choi. In 1995, he served as a researcher at the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development. In the South Korean presidential election, 2002, he was special advisor on economics to then-presidential candidate Lee Hoi-chang.

Also known to his friends as "Sinkiru".
