Following the baseball drama GLove, director Kang Woo-suk of the Public Enemy trilogy has set his sights on another sport, mixed-martial arts, in Fist of Legend (no relationship to the Jet Li film of the same name). Based on a webcomic series written by Lee Jong-kyoo and illustrated by Lee Yoon-gyun, it centers on a group of middle-aged men who were once hailed as legends during their teenage years, participating in a fight tournament to win the grand prize money.
The cast include Hwang Jung-min (New World), Lee Yo-won (May 18), Yoo Jun-sang (R2B: Return To Base) and Yoon Je-moon (Doomsday Book).
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."
