Bae Young-Soo (Hangul: 배영수, Hanja: 裵英洙) (born May 4, 1981 in Daegu, South Korea) is a South Korean starting pitcher who plays for the Hanwha Eagles of the KBO League. He bats and throws right-handed. He is well known as a franchise player of his former hometown club, Samsung Lions.

In 2004, Bae finished the season with a record of 17-2 leading the KBO league in wins and winning percentage (.895), and won his first KBO MVP award.

In 2005, Bae won the strikeout title and was runner-up in ERA (2.86) with a record of 11-11. After the season, he was named to the South Korean national team for the 2006 World Baseball Classic.

After 2014 season, Bae earned free agent status, second time in his career. He failed to agree on a new contract with Samsung Lions within primal negotiation term. And this means the end of Bae's fifteen years of commitment for the Lions. Seven days later Bae signed three-year contract with Hanwha Eagles.
