Lee Byung-hunnote  (born July 12, 1970) is a South Korean actor. He has had a long, diverse, and storied career in Korean cinema and television, starring in works like A Bittersweet Life and Masquerade (2012), as well as the drama series Iris (2009) and its accompanying film. He has also appeared in several action-oriented Western franchise fare like G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra (as Storm Shadow) and Terminator Genisys (as the T-1000). Fittingly, he and Ahn Sung-ki were the first Asian actors to imprint their hands and feet at the forecourt of the Grauman's Chinese Theatre.

Not to be confused with Korean director Lee Byeong-heon.
