He looks like he's 3-4 inches taller than the other guy, standing in front of him, yet his hands are smaller....

Also recently found this interesting bit of reading:

Ah, fake in so many ways, even if it's real. But, meh. I'm not against cosplay, so why should I complain about this.

Kim is almost blown over backward by Trump's empty force.

Seriously, whatever the south Korean equivalent of an uncle Tom is, is what Lee Dong-Sup is.

But he does it all wrong. In TKD you are not supposed to keep a guard up. You don't keep your hands up, you keep them hanging passively to the sides off the body.

He might be able to deflect a jab this way, which is unfair in TKD rules, so basically he cheats here in TKD as well. :P
