Character BiographyEdit


Kang using his pistol to takeover the bunker

Kang was a North Korean terrorist and the leader of the Korean terrorists who masterminded the takeover of the White House in order to unify Korea. He disguised himself as a an aide for South Korean Prime Minister Lee Tae-Woo. To ensure a reunified Korea, he and former secret service agent, Dave Forbes takes President Benjamin Asher, Secretary of Defense Ruth McMillan and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, Admiral Nathan Hoenig hostage in the Presidential bunker. Kang orders the US to withdraw all their troops to allow the civil war to end and also seeks to destroy the US with activating their nuclear weapons as payback for the untimely death of his parents. To accomplish this, Kang needs the three codes from Asher, McMillan and Hoenig that will allow him to activate Cerberus. And if they do not comply, he will shoot the president to death. Kang was a ruthless, cold blooded killer who executed multiple people over the course of the film, and attempted to shoot one on national television although he failed to accomplish this. He was eventually killed by Mike Banning during a knife fight after he is stabbed in the head, piercing his skull and impaling him through the brain. Banning then disabled Cerberus, ruining Kang's plan to destroy America.
