Kim Seul-gie (Korean: 김슬기, born October 10, 1991) is a South Korean actress. She is well known for being a cast member ("crew") on the tvN entertainment show Saturday Night Live Korea.


A Busan native, she enjoyed making people laugh from an early age. According to an interview, during her third year of high school, she started to prepare for a career of professional acting, to overcome a broken heart. She eventually attended the Seoul Institute of the Arts, a leading university for arts and entertainment in South Korea. In 2011, she participated in a 30th anniversary memorial play on a college society called 'Venture to meet' (만남의 시도), with Jang Jin, a well-known film director. Months later on the mid-2011, when Jang Jin was looking for cast members for the live comic variety show called Saturday Night Live Korea (SNL Korea), he recruited Kim Seul-gie as a cast member. While gaining support on this experimental live programme consistently, her popularity has also significantly increased, especially in the latter half of 2012.[2]

As of January 2014, she is taking her time off from college, and performing her acting career in various fields. She is a member of both as so-called Jang Jin's Division (장진사단, a group of entertainers who have been influenced by Jang Jin), and part of his Entertainment company called 'Film-it-suda' (필름있수다).
