“The Killer” Coming July 13 — See the Trailer!

In a 2008 interview with Korea Times, Khan spoke of Bruce Lee as his childhood idol, and how Lee’s philosophy of martial arts significantly informs his own, stating: “I stress fast, short and powerful kicks…Bruce Lee’s movies were hits despite him using just three kicks: the sidekick, the roundhouse kick and the spinning heel kick.”

He would further state; “Martial arts are basically a science after all the mysticism is removed…I think realism is important in martial arts, but realism can involve artistic elements. The motion or movement can be beautiful.”

In the same interview, Khan also stated that his ultimate goal was to make martial arts films in the Korean film industry that would be widely recognized internationally.

He also desired that they carried his philosophical outlook: “Korea has no martial arts films exportable abroad…I hope to make a Korean martial arts movie that is both realistic and pragmatic.”
