How Gang-il joined the Tourney

Gang-il is the chairman of the World Taekwondo Federation and Kim's master. His astonishing kicking techniques can break through any opponent's guard. He is always accompanied by a different woman every time he returns from his travels.

Before the Second Tourney, Gang-il was holding a taekwondo tournament with the winner facing off against him. However when it ended, 15 taekwondo fighters were mysteriously killed. Finding a dropped pair of jamadhar, he traces the gloves to a man called Silat.
