Before Dragon Lee, Hwang Jang Lee, Benny Tsui, Elton Chong and others Korea had one big star, that was [I][B]Han Yong Cheol[/B][/I].

Born in 1954, in early age Han Yong Cheol moved with his parents to USA during the war problems. This 1.84 tall Tae Kwan Do expert was chosen by Korean film directors to take a part in movie "Manchurian Tiger" and later whole string of other martial art movies including "Korean Connection", "The Succesor" & "My Name is Twin-Legs".

After he retired in 1982, Han went back to USA until 2-3 years ago when he appeared on several Korean film festivals along side Hwang Jang Lee, Dragon Lee, Casanova Wong and Kim Tae-Jeong.

What do you guys think about him? Favorite movie? Any cool lobby cards or anything to share?

[Quote=rdenn]a great kicker but i dont think he had that charisma, [B]he always looked so cold[/B] in this movies and he was the hero not the villian, but an excellent martial artist.[/Quote]

Thats why he is so different and cool!

He is really great kicker, if i'm correct in "Tomb For A Strongman" co-stars Hwang In-Sik. Two great kickers, that can't be bad!
