The 2007 season of the K-League kicked off on March 3. The league's previous split-season format was replaced by a combined 26-game single-season schedule. Each team played 26 matches consisting of a home and away fixture against every other team. After all games had been played, the top 6 teams entered the championship playoffs to determine the overall champion. The playoff fixtures took place in late October, with the final being played on two legs in early November.

The league took a break after Round 13 (June 23), as a result of the Asian Cup taking place between July 7 and July 29. The league resumed with Round 14 (August 8).

The league cup format changed as well. In 2006, all teams played one game against every other team, hence the champion was decided on a-13 game schedule. 2007's cup will sport 12 teams (except Seongnam Ilhwa Chunma and Chunnam Dragons who are participating in the AFC Champions League 2007), split into 2 Groups. The pool-league was based on home and away.
