Everyone is good at something. This martial artist, dubbed "Taekwondo Girl" (태권 소녀) is very good at, well, taekwondo.


As tipster Sang points out, the Taekwondo Girl goes by the name "Taemi" or "K Kim." The 24 year-old has appeared in a couple martial arts movies. You might remember her from this amazing pitch she threw.

Recently, she appeared on South Korean variety show Star King in a showdown of sorts with Japanese martial artist Rina Takeda, who once again smashed tiles. With her head.


Here is Takeda before a studio audience:

These GIFs have been widely circulating online in South Korea. I'm not sure which stunt is more impressive. They're both incredibly cool!
