Martial Arts Movie Junkie recently forwarded the new trailer for the Korean MMA action film, Fist Of Legend, which is now available online. The film is directed by Kang Woo-seok and stars Hwang Jeong-min, Yoo Joon-sang, Lee Yo-won, Yoon Je-moon, Jeong Woong-in and Seong Ji-roo.
Fist Of Legend (a.k.a. The Legendary Fist), which has no relation to the classic 1994 Jet Li actioner of the same name, is based on an original webtoon about a group of friends, once heralded in their teen years as legends, who must now face each other as rivals in the ultimate prize-fighting competition.
A moment of bad luck derailed Deok-kyu's Olympic dreams and led him and his friends to jail. Jin-ho got out of jail quickly because of his rich parents, but Deok-kyu, Jae-seok, and Sang-hoon were not so lucky.Years later, while running a noodle shop to earn extra money following an accident involving his daughter, Deok-kyu accepts an invitation to a televised survival tournament, Fist of Legend. A group of middle-aged men who used to be called "legends" during their teenage high school days will take part in the "real action fighting" reality show, and the winner gets a prize of ₩20 million every round.
FIST OF LEGEND is slated for a South Korea theatrical release on April 11, 2013. Click HERE if the embed below fails to load.
