When an army of giant mecha (walking vehicles controlled by a pilot) attack, young martial-arts champion Kim Hoon must pilot Robot Taekwon V to defend the planet! Inspired by Mazinger Z, a Japanese anime popular in 1970s Korea, Robot Taekwon V was the country’s first full-length animated feature and the first to be digitally restored. (1976, director Kim Cheong-gi, 79 minutes)
