A new bacteriocin-producing lactic acid bacteria[A1]  isolated from kimchi was identified as <italic>Lactococcus lactis</italic> strain JNU 534, presenting preservative properties for foods of animal origin. In this study, we present the complete genome sequence of the bacterial strain JNU 534. The final complete genome assembly consists of one circular chromosome (2,443,687 bp) with an overall GC content of 35.2%, one circular plasmid sequence (46,387 bp) with a GC content of 34.5%,[A2]  and one circular contig sequence (7666 bp) with a GC content of 36.2%.
