The Korea Bay, sometimes the West Korea Bay (Korean : 서조선만 or 서한만; Hanja : 西朝鮮灣 or 西韓灣; Korean pronunciation:  [sʰʌdʑosʰʌn.man] or [sʰʌhan.man] ), is a bight and the northern extension of the Yellow Sea, [1] between the southeastern coastline of China's Liaoning province and the western coastline of North Korea's North Pyongan, South Pyongan and South Hwanghae provinces. [2] It is separated from the Bohai Sea by the Liaodong Peninsula, with Dalian's Lüshunkou District marking its western end, and westernmost tip of North Korea's Ryongyon County as its eastern end. [3] [4]

The Yalu (Amnok) River, which marks the western two-thirds of the China–North Korea border, empties into the Korea Bay between Dandong (China) and Sinŭiju (North Korea). [5] [6] The Chongchon River and Taedong River also drains into the Korea Bay at Sinanju and Nampo, respectively.
