Alternate Versions

The dubbed version that was released in North America has the theme song translated and some action scene edited for content (eg. elimiating bloody battles and mild profanity), but the international dubbed version is un-cut, different dialogue that is more faithful to the original Korean version, plus, the theme song stayed un-translated as well.

Korean anime classic

Think about it, Robot Taekwon V is what you get when you combine Superheroes, Kaiju Eiga and Ultraman (though Taekwon was made a year before Ultraman).

Quite an interesting and innovative anime. It follows a gang of youths finding a Giant Robot that could adapt in any environment and can be used as a tool for keeping the galaxy at peace. Alongside that, sometimes the gang in charge of Taekwon V can unknowingly summon outside forces to aid them in fighting anything that is evil or corrupt.

Sure, it may sound basic right now, but I am going to be nice and not spoil anything. Though Tetsujin nijû-hachi gô/Gigantor started the giant robot anime category, Robot Taekwon boosted the genre even more, since Japanese Monsters/Kaiju are popular in Korea as well (talk about a co-incidence, Kuk-Dong and Seki Trading company distribute and occasionally work with the Japanese companies Toho and Toei).

If you can find any Taekwon V anime, GET IT! And even to this day, Robot Taekwon V anime series and movies are being made! Talk about high profile.
