That's not Billy Chong in the lead role of this South Korean Movie from 1982. The name is Benny Tsui. Consider that a warning. He was also in "Incredible Shaolin Thunderkick", and "7 Star Grand Mantis." They are two truly craptacular movies. This movie, however, has Hwang Jang-Lee as the villain and hooray for that. He shows off his triple side kick in the first fight.
Benny is there for the comedy. To be fair, it's not that Benny isn't funny it's just that it isn't funny at all. The big questions remain - who is this guy and how did he ever end up as a lead in a kung fu movie? It makes no sense but he starred in four films. In fact he is not even needed in this movie. All his scenes could be deleted and the Hwang Jang-Lee parts would be fine. The movie only runs 77 minutes though so maybe that explains Benny Tsui's career - filler material.
