Il Chyun Kwak (born 20 December 1955 in Seoul, South Korea) is a former principal of Seoul Digitech High School, and an academic administrator with a career background in environmental policy and management.
Kwak previously served as an officer of the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific and the UN Commission on Sustainable Development.
Kwak came to public attention as the only high school leader choosing the South Korean government-issued Korean history textbook as an additional option to two other privately-published Korean history textbooks that were already in use. He also gave the Sixth Seoul Digitech High School Regular Concert on 6 December 2017 together with the Eighth United States Army Korea Band to address special appreciation for the United States Forces Korea.
During Kwak's time as principal of Seoul Digitech High School, the school received a special recommendation from the Small and Medium Business Administration and was invited to the Blue House by the Moon Jae-in administration for consistently maintaining outstanding post-graduation employment rate of 77%.
