South Korea–Thailand relations are the bilateral relations between the Kingdom of Thailand and the Republic of Korea. The two countries established diplomatic relations on October 1, 1958.

During the Korean War, Thailand was the second nation to send troops to support South Korea, just after the United States. In October 2003, South Korean president Roh Moo-hyun visited Thailand, and Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra visited Seoul in November 2005.[1]

Bilateral trade in 2011 amounted to $13.9 billion in value.[2]
