A Korean couple (อาจารย์ Moon) was participating to Taekwondo events during Olympic games. The wife won her final but the husband failed. Twenty years have passed and they have now three kids. Two of them are now two grown up teenagers, i.e. Tayang and Tae Mi. The father Moon is having a Taekwondo school in Thailand and still trains them to excel in Taekwondo. A mysterious business man from Korea wishes to steal an old Thai blade (สมบัติของชาติ). Tayang sees the robbers and intervenes. The parents are also involved with the robbers’ driver. The blade is taken back but the robbers succeed to flee. Ruffians are looking for revenge and storm the Korean couple’s house. Tayang wishes to be a dancer and not a Taekwondo champion as requested by his father. The father failed to get a gold medal 20 years ago and wishes his son to get one. Uncle Bom (Mum Jokmok) brings the children outside Bangkok as it starts to be dangerous for them. They meet Wawa (Yanin Vismistananda), who is a Thai boxing champion (มวยไทย). Korean Taekwondo is meeting Thai boxing! Tayang flees at nighttime to join the last audition to become a dancer (dream project). While he is away, the campement is attacked. He helps on time but cannot prevent his youngest brother to be kidnapped. To get back his son, the father needs to exchange him with the precious blade to be stolen during an exhibition. Despite getting the blade, the head of the ruffians refuses to honor his promise. Final fights happen in Bangkok zoo. As often in modern Thai martial arts movies, fightings involve elephants. The movie director is Prachya Pinkaew, who directed Ong Bak. Panna Rittikrai is used again as action supervisor. The Kick (วอนโดนเตะ) was released in year 2011.
