Gang-il (Korean/hangul:강일) is a hero in The King of Fighters XIV.
Gang-il is the chairman of the World Taekwondo Federation and Kim's master. His astonishing kicking techniques can break through any opponent's guard. He is always accompanied by a different woman every time he returns from his travels.
Gang-il's fortitude and beaming pride for Taekwondo are perhaps the only traits he shares with Kim. When he's not fighting, Gang-il is an outgoing socialite and brazen womanizer. Believing that Kim's rigidness to his beliefs holds him back, Gang-il may try to criticize his student; he is so far the only person who can do so without suffering Kim's strict retaliation.
