Kum Haehyun

Voice: Hideaki Tezuka

The head of the Kum family and descendant of “Tuners” who can control the flow of energy. Kum Haehyun is a female, unknown to all, and normally rides inside of the humanoid artificial body Jeonryeok Kum (“Full Power Kum”). Only the Kum family are able to manipulate the flow of energy, but their presence in the world is scarce.

Jeonryeok Kum takes the form of a long-bearded elderly martial artist. Fitting with his appearance, he possesses a number of fierce martial art techniques.

When executing Kum’s Dust Attack, which on hit launches the opponent for a follow-up combo, a writing character appears on-screen. The attack’s range seems quite large?
