Gang-il (Hangul: 강일, Katakana: ガンイル, Gan'iru) is a new character introduced in The King of Fighters XIV.

He is voiced by Toshiya Fujisawa.


Gang-il is the chairman of the World Taekwondo Federation and Kim's master. His astonishing kicking techniques can break through any opponent's guard. He is always accompanied by a different woman every time he returns from his travels.


Gang-il's fortitude and beaming pride for Taekwondo are perhaps the only traits he shares with Kim. When he's not fighting, Gang-il is an outgoing socialite and brazen womanizer. Believing that Kim's rigidness to his beliefs holds him back, Gang-il may try to criticize his student; he is so far the only person who can do so without suffering Kim's strict retaliation.


  • Above average strength - Gang-il's kicks are very powerful, capable of blowing even the heaviest opponents away with little difficulty.


Fighting Style

Gang-il fights using the Korean martial art, Taekwondo. His skills mirror Kim and his sons, Kim Jae Hoon, and Kim Dong Hwan. Unlike Kim, Gang-il's attacks are slower and stronger.

Despite being Kim's master, Kim has surpassed him, as is evident from the fact that Kim can use Hangetsuzan both on the ground and in the air while Gang-il can only use it in the air, Hienzan is one of Kim's regular special moves while for Gang-il it is one of his supers and Houou Kyaku is one of Kim's supers while Gang-il uses it as his climax super.
