How Kim (Dong Hwan) joined the Tourney

Kim Dong Hwan and Kim Jae Hoon are the two sons of Kim Kaphwan, worldwide famous Taekwondo master. While Jae Hoon is a serious practitioner and very similar to his father, Dong Hwan is very cocky and somewhat of a slacker. Though it may seem like he's goofing off, he enters the tournament to continue his father's legacy.

Suddenly, a letter was sent to Dong Hwan's hotel room. It read he was to fight the Helghan empire alongside other taekwondo users. The letter came from Rico.

How to unlock

For both methods, you must fight Kim Dong Hwan at Oriental Casino Woo. Alternatively, you can avoid clashing with him by wishing for him from Shenron or purchasing him for 200 Smash coins in the Smash Store. After defeating Kim Dong Hwan, wishing for him from Shenron, or purchasing him from the Smash Store, the announcer will say "Someone else has joined the Tourney!" after a Smash Ball appears on the lower-right corner of the screen with a message saying "You can now use one of Kim Kaphwan's sons and also a taekwondo user, Kim Dong Hwan!" He will be seen right of Kim (Savage Reign), left of Bayhou, above Nosaru and below Kohza.
