'''Kang Yeonsak''' is the main antagonist in the 2013 live action film, ''Olympus Has Fallen''. He is the leader of a group of North Korean soldiers, hackers, and servants who aims to make North Korea (and to a lesser extent, himself as well) earn the respect of everyone worldwide by killing or intimidating them.

While most of the film centers on Kang working to destroy the United States, his true target is South Korea. The plan involves that destroying the country would cripple military support for South Korea, making it easier for his home country North Korea to invade their bordered neighbor. This is also demonstrated when Kang executed South Korean Prime Minister Lee Tae-Woo before the American politicians, proving that Kang despised South Koreans more than Americans. U.S. Army General Edward Clegg revealed that Kang's mother was killed when he was a child, which drove him to insanity and seeking revenge on America.

As a child born in August 12th, 1976, Kang's father was executed for crimes against North Korea. He and his mother were brought across the Korean Demilitarized Zone, but while they were crossing the border, Kang's mother was killed by an American landmine. Then, Kang founded a terrorist paramilitary organization called the KUF. He and his group brought uranium enrichment technology from Pakistan to Pyongyang in 2002. Then, Kang and his group were responsible for the 2004 bombing of the British Embassy in Seoul and were involved in a hostage crisis in Seoul in 2007. He kept himself under the radar to avoid being photographed or identified by any Western Intelligence agency. Then, he blended into the South Korean government and poses himself as a chief of security and primary aide to South Korean Prime Minister Lee Tae-Woo.

*Because ''Olympus Has Fallen'' is partially science fiction, North Koreans in real-life cannot be as dangerous towards the United States or South Korea as Kang Yeonsak. It is virtually impossible for North Korea to make a full-scale invasion on Washington D.C. or Seoul as the film depicts. South Koreans have confirmed in legitimate polls that they do not see North Korea as effectively dangerous.

~ Kang revealing his motives to President Asher.

Kang Yeonsak is the main antagonist in the 2013 live action film Olympus Has Fallen. He is the leader of a group of North Korean soldiers, hackers, and servants who aims to make North Korea (and to a lesser extent, himself as well) earn the respect of everyone worldwide by killing or intimidating them.

While most of the film centers on Kang working to destroy the United States, his true target is South Korea. The plan involves that destroying the country would cripple military support for South Korea, making it easier for his home country North Korea to invade their bordered neighbor. This is also demonstrated when Kang executed South Korean Prime Minister Lee Tae-Woo before the American politicians, proving that Kang despised South Koreans more than Americans. U.S. Army General Edward Clegg revealed that Kang's mother was killed when he was a child, which drove him to insanity and seeking revenge on America.

He was portrayed by Rick Yune, who also played Johnny Tran in The Fast and the Furious, and Zao in Die Another Day.

Biography

Early life

As a child born in August 12, 1976, Kang's father was executed for crimes against North Korea. He and his mother were brought across the Korean Demilitarized Zone, but while they were crossing the border, Kang's mother was killed by an American landmine. Then, Kang founded a terrorist paramilitary organization called the KUF. He and his group brought uranium enrichment technology from Pakistan to Pyongyang in 2002. Then, Kang and his group were responsible for the 2004 bombing of the British Embassy in Seoul and were involved in a hostage crisis in Seoul in 2007. He kept himself under the radar to avoid being photographed or identified by any Western Intelligence agency. Then, he blended into the South Korean government and poses himself as a chief of security and primary aide to South Korean Prime Minister Lee Tae-Woo.

Arrival and Reveal

About 36 years later in July 6, 2013, Kang still disguised himself as the head of security and aide for South Korean Prime Minister Lee. To ensure a reunified Korea, he and former Secret Service agent, Dave Forbes, take President Benjamin Asher, Secretary of Defense, Ruth McMillan, and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Admiral Joe Hoenig, hostage in the underground Presidential Emergency Operations Center in the East Wing of the White House.

Plan

Kang orders the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Allan Trumbull, to withdraw the U.S. Seventh Fleet and 28,500 soldiers that are actively defending South Korea to allow the civil war to end while also seeking to destroy the country by self-destructing their silo-based nuclear weapons as payback for the untimely death of his parents. To accomplish this, Kang needs three codes from Asher, McMillan and Hoenig that will allow him to activate a highly-classified fail-safe U.S. military protocol called Cerberus.

Final Fight and Death

Kang is eventually stabbed and killed by former Army Ranger-turned Secret Service Agent, Mike Banning, during a brutal fight in the bunker. Mike then deactivates Cerberus in time, and saves everyone living in America from being killed by nuclear weapons.
