Champion (Hangul: 챔피언) is a 2002 South Korean film, directed by Kwak Kyung-taek, about South Korean boxer Duk Koo Kim, portrayed by Yu Oh-seong. Kim was Korea's most popular boxer, who in his rise to international fame faced the reigning lightweight champion Ray Mancini in 1982. He lost the match after 14 long rounds, and within minutes dropped into a coma from which he never recovered. The match changed boxing rules around the world; and affected Korea especially.
