The International Formula 3 Korea Super Prix was a Formula Three race held annually on the streets of Changwon, Republic of Korea between 1999 and 2003. The event enjoyed brief success as a sister 'flyaway' event to complement the season-ending Macau Grand Prix, before being replaced in 2004 with an ultimately one-off Bahrain Superprix at the Bahrain International Circuit.

The Korea Super Prix was due to make a return in 2010, at the new Korea International Circuit,[5][6][7] but this was cancelled due to "a legal technicality with the circuit" which surfaced just a few weeks before the race was due to run.[8]
