Kyun Yeo (Korean; Hanja, 20 September 917-19 July 973) was a Korean Buddhist and poet.

Among his works are "Songs of the Ten Vows Samantabhara." These songs are set out in 1075 in the biography The Life of Kuehne. This is the first extant collection of poetry in Korean.

Kyun Yeo played an important role in the spread of the Hwaeom school of Buddhism.[1]
