Updated with video of Xiaohai and Leshar using Kim and a couple of strat tips plus more events! I think this page will most probably contain everything you need to know about Kim Kaphwan, apart from the fact his first name is Kaphwan.

Here’s the roundup for Kim, and as feared, he looks absolutely killer.  Even SNK released a video to guide you through how to wreck your opponent: it’s all about their reaction time, can they block  the mixups, the followups, the 4F hangetsuzan and then a crossup?  I can’t see how this character will be as much fun versus the CPU, so it’s likely that there will be a surge of activity, so don’t spend too long in the shed, get out there and fight!

SNK has also released some bug fixes to adjust some missing hitboxes and inconsistent invulnerabilities which might explain some things.
