The head of Libya's diplomatic mission in Seoul, Masaoud Al Ghali, said the two countries are reviewing an upgrade in diplomatic ties.
He said the National Transitional Council in Tripoli, which has ousted long-term dictator Moamar Gadhafi, is to restore its mission in Seoul to embassy status.
Gadhafi downgraded the relationship in 2007 after a Libyan diplomat was accused of being involved in a scandal in Korea.
