Kim Yoo-jung (Hangul: 김유정; Hanja: 金裕貞; born September 22, 1999) is a South Korean actress. She debuted as a model for a confectionery brand at the age of five. After her acting debut in 2003, she became one of the best known child actresses in Korea and since then, has transitioned into teen roles by starring in television series Dong Yi (2010), Moon Embracing the Sun (2012), May Queen (2012) and Angry Mom (2015). She hosted music show Inkigayo from November 2014 to April 2016 and took on her first leading role in KBS2's historical drama Love in the Moonlight (2016).

Considered "Korea's Little Sister" when she was a child actress, Kim has since been dubbed "Sageuk Fairy" after starring in several acclaimed historical dramas in her career. In 2017, she ranked 8th on Forbes Korea Power Celebrity list, the youngest to be included in the Top 10 at 17 years old.
