Dutch King Willem-Alexander will visit South Korea in November at the invitation of South Korean President Park Geun-hye, Park's office said Friday.
The monarch and his wife, Queen Maxima, will visit Seoul from Nov. 3-4, reciprocating Park's official visit to the Netherlands in March, Cheong Wa Dae said in a press release.
Park, who traveled to the Netherlands to attend the Nuclear Security Summit, was the first South Korean president to officially visit the country.
The king hosted a luncheon for Park, and the two sides discussed ways to expand their countries' bilateral ties.
Willem-Alexander, who succeeded to the throne in April 2013, visited South Korea four times as the crown prince. (Yonhap)
