You’ve seen him as the brawny dad-to-be in Philippines’ highest grossing foreign-language film “Train to Busan.” Now, Ma Dong-Seok, also known as Don Lee returns to Philippine cinemas in the South Korean sports comedy Champion. Watch the trailer below.

The film tells the story of Mark (Ma Dong-Seok), a disgraced arm-wrestling champion who was adopted by an American family when he was a boy. He’s working as a bouncer at a club when he meets Jin-ki, a Korean student who has a knack for schemes to make money from any situation he’s in. Jin-ki convinced Mark to return to Korea after 30 years to join an arm-wrestling tournament. Upon arriving, Jin-ki gives him his biological mother’s address. Hesitant at first, he visits the address and gets united with a sister he didn’t know existed. Max, while embracing the new family he has, prepares to make a mark in the arm wrestling tournament.
