Tae Yu is one of the characters of Shin Angyo Onshi and was the first person recruited to the Hwalbindang; he met Hong Gildong one day when she was working to bury a poor family who had all died.
Impressed by her selflessness and her desire to create a better world, he used his considerable hapki skills to help her. He shares the same feelings as Bae Ryong towards Hong Gildong, however he did not express them. Later on his arm and leg were blasted off accidentally by his comrade Cho which Munsu setted his plan up.
After the events of Kimhae gold incident, he and Su survived under the care of Mito. He decided not to kill Munsu but to seek revenge on Aji Tae for killing Dorso. Yeongsil created a prosthetic leg for Tae Yu while leaving the arm development later. While staying under the care of Mito, he observed Mito and notice he's not a simple Blacksmith. Mito teachers Tae Yu of basic summoning, who can summon relatively large beasts. He is one of the few to survive at the end of the final war.
