Yoo Byung-jae (born 6 May 1988) is a South Korean television personality, actor and screenwriter.
Yoo rose to fame in 2012 when he became a writer on the third season of live sketch comedy show Saturday Night Live Korea. He then joined the cast of the succeeding seasons of SNL Korea, notably playing a star's overworked manager in the sketch Extreme Job. He also appeared in the variety shows Yoo Se-yoon's Art Video and First Day of Work. Yoo's increasing popularity led to Infinite Challenge's "Sixth Man" project, where he was one of eight celebrities who competed to become the reality show's new regular cast member (Yoo lost to singer Hwang Kwanghee).
In 2015, Yoo made his first foray into scripted television when he wrote and starred in The Superman Age, a seven-episode fantasy-comedy series about three single, unemployed "losers" whose virginity at age 25 enables them to acquire superpowers. Later that year, he became the first comedian to sign with top agency YG Entertainment, who called Yoo "not just a talented actor with an outstanding comical wit, but also an asset to the company as a writer who brings creative content."
