Kim Taek-Soo (Hangul: 김택수, Hanja: 金擇洙) (born May 25, 1970) is a male former table tennis player from South Korea. He is best known for his powerful forehand, amazingly quick footwork and perhaps the best traditional penhold backhand in the history of table tennis. Taek Soo played the penhold style and used a single side of the racket as opposed to the newer style of reverse backhand looping that has become a big part of the Chinese penhold arena.

As of 2010 Kim Taek-Soo has been announced as the new national coach of the Korean National Team for table tennis. It is unknown when he will take over from the current head-coach Yoo Nam-Kyu.
