My ideal team ^^ Updated for a better entry ^^

My ideal team would be Hwoarang and Ibuki here is my reasoning.

The Korean Hwoarang - Tae Kwon DoThe Japanese Ibuki - Ninjitsu

Surface level I have only used Hwoarang on Tekken and Ibuki is one of my favorite characters of the SF series.

But here is another reason ^^ I am a Korean American married to a Japanese woman.  Our countries had a pretty dark past but there is now many reasons for reconciliation and also cooperation.  This two person group reminds me of my family and hopefully they can work together to make an awesome comboing team ^^

Update with the history of Korean characters in fighting games.

This is important to me because I am a Korean American and if you have met any Korean or Korean Americans you will have noticed that we are very prideful of our country.  Historically one of the reasons we are this way is because we are a small country surrounded by bigger countries and we have been constantly attacked.  Most of the time we have stood our ground.  This sort of explains why I am drawn to Korean characters especially if they appear in Japanese video games.  So here we go.

From my knowledge the earliest Korean fighter is Kim Kaphwan of the Fatal Fury and King of Fighter series.

               

A very typical character and if you see some of Hwaorangs moves in this game they actually feel very Kim Kaphwan ish.  The earliest 3D fighting character is probably Baek Doosan of Tekken 2.  Hwaorang is actually his disciple.

      

 I actually like Paek Doosan a little better than Hwaorang, Hwaorang looks a bit like a punk ^^ and Paek Doosan is a name of a famous mountain in Korea.

I hope someone can correct me if I am wrong but these are the major Korean fighters in any fighting game.  King of Fighters had a Korean team but I don't think they were that popular.  This is why I was very happy to see Capcom put Juri in their Street Fighter series.

Now Juri I feel is pretty cool because not only is she Korean, but she breaks the typical idea by being a female, being evil, a little crazy, and having a cybernetic eye ^^  I commend Capcom for doing something like that!

Anyways.  Thanks for reading guys!  And my team remains Hwoarang and Ibuki FTW!!!!

Thanks for checking this out ^^
