Creative Korea Party[1] (Hangul: 창조한국당, Hanja: 創造韓國黨, Abbreviation: CKP, literally Create Korea Party) was a political party of South Korea. It was formed out of the Uri Party and its resulting civil splinter groups, with their leader Moon Kook-hyun, a well-known former business leader who recently started his political career. Their 2007 presidential bid was unsuccessful, however, they gained 3 seats at the 2008 general election on April 9, 2008, including the election of Moon Kook-hyun at Eunpyeong-eul, Seoul district; but lost all of these seats in the subsequent 2012 general election. They were deregistered on 26 April 2012.
