Hwang Jang Lee is a Korean martial artist and film actor.Hwang began to take up taekwondo lessons at the age of 14. He became a martial arts instructor for the Korean and South-Vietnamese armies, specializing in taekwondo. After acting in Korean movies, he came to work in Hong Kong in 1976, where he starred in a great number of martial art movies, being generally cast as the villain, such as The Secret Rivals, which was the first to star him as "Silver Fox". He fought almost only with his legs, earning him nicknames such as "King of the Legfighters".Hwang appeared in Snake in the Eagle's Shadow, Drunken Master (both opposite Jackie Chan) and in No Retreat, No Surrender 2, Game of Death II.In 1980, Hwang directed, produced and starred as the hero in Hitman in the Hand of Buddha.According to the Internet Movie Database, Lee killed a man in real life (in self-defense) using his powerful kick. The most reliable story actually unfolds similar to many kung fu movies. Lee was apparently challenged by a man who wielded a knife against him simply to see if Lee's martial arts technique was as good as his knife skills. Lee, only intending to subdue the man, underestimated the power of his kick on the man, therefore, unintentionally killing him.Hwang Jang Lee quit acting in the early 1990s and returned in South Korea on Jeju, where at first he ran a golf-tee manufacturing company and hotel in Seoul. He also ran a bodyguard agency. Hwang only made occasional film appearances, notably two Korean films, Underworld (1994) and Boss (1996). Hwang has a son, Jason. In January of 2003, Hwang was awarded his 9th-degree black belt in Taekwondo and is now Grandmaster Hwang Jang Lee.In late 2002, Hwang Jang-lee was interviewed on camera at length by Hong Kong based writer/producer Mike Leeder in an interview intended for the Hong Kong Legends DVD range, the interview continues to remain in the Contender vaults awaiting the release of their much discussed special editions of "Snake in the Eagles Shadow" and "Drunken Master".
