Kim Tai Chung (born 1943), also known as Kim Tae Jeong or Tong Lung (唐龍; Chinese stage name), is a Korean-born taekwondo practitioner and actor. In 1978, he was chosen to play the double for the late Bruce Lee in the latter's last film, Game of Death.
Along with Yuen Biao (who performed the acrobatics/stunts), Kim played Lee's character so well that the producers used him again a few years later. The latter film, Tower of Death, was a sequel to Game of Death. Kim not only doubled for Bruce Lee again, but played the role of his brother. Kim fought against fellow Korean Hwang Jang Lee in the final fight scene. In 1982, Kim returned in Korea and starred with acting in many dramas and martial art films, best known role from that period is alongside a Jackie Chan look-alike named Jackie Chang in Fist Of Death (also called Bruce & Jackie to the Rescue), where they played characters copied from Bruce Lee and Jackie Chan's iconic personae. In 1985, producer Ng See-Yuen was looking for an actor to play the ghost of Bruce Lee in No Retreat, No Surrender, which marked the film debut of Jean-Claude Van Damme. Kim was chosen to play Lee to Kurt McKinney's bullied martial artist. After this
