Soseong of Silla (died 800) (r. 798–800) was the 39th to rule the Korean kingdom of Silla. He was the grandson of King Wonseong, his father Kim In-gyeom having died before he could take the throne. He married Lady Gyehwa, the daughter of the daeachan Suk-myeong.

Soseong died only nineteen months after taking the throne. This brought on a renewal of the succession strife which typified later Unified Silla.
