Choe Ui (1233 - 1258) () was the fourth and last Choe dictator of the Ubong Choe Military regime.

Biography

When he was born in 1233, his father was a monk. In 1257, Choe Ui became military leader of Goryeo after his father's death. He was beautiful in appearance, quiet and shy. He learned poetry and writing. The Choe regime ended, after Choe Ui was assassinated by Kim Jun in order to take the power. His ancestors were all trained in the martial arts, but Choe Ui did not, probably because by then, the Choe family was very wealthy, and no fighting on the battlefields was necessary.
