Jeon (also spelled jun or chon), buchimgae, jijimgae, or jijim refer to many pancake-like dishes in Korean cuisine. It has been also called jeonyueo or jeonyuhwa, especially in Korean royal court cuisine. Sometimes, jeonya (hangul: 저냐) is used as an abbreviated term for the two. Jeon is made with various ingredients such as sliced meats, poultry, seafood, and vegetables depending on the style and mixed with flour batter or coated with egg batter and then pan-fried with oil.

Jeon is commonly eaten as an appetizer, as banchan (small side dishes), or as anju (food to eat while drinking). Jeon is also served as an important food for jesasang (제사상, 祭祀床, ceremonial table setting for jesa, ancestor worship) and janchi (hangul: 잔치, feast, or festival). The jeon used for jesa is called gannap (hangul: 간납, hanja: 干納 or 肝納) or gannam (hangul: 간남, hanja: 肝南) which is made with beef liver, omasum, or fish along with vegetables and green onions on a skewer.

Jeon are sometimes eaten as a sweet dessert; one such variety is called hwajeon (literally "flower jeon"). Bindaetteok (mung bean pancake), pajeon (green onion pancake), and kimchijeon are popular jeon in South Korea. The jeon name commonly follows its main ingredient.
