Dedicated to our friend and fellow stuntman, our prayers and blessings.
Veteran Hollywood stuntman Ju Kun, who has doubled for Beijing-born superstar Jet Li in movies like The Expendables, The Forbidden Kingdom and Fearless, was confirmed as one of the 239 passengers on board the missing MAS flight MH370.
The 35-year-old was on his way back to Beijing to visit his five-year-old and one-year-old sons, and to collect work materials for a project, Marco Polo, a Netflix series (in collaboration with The Weinstein Company) that was filmed in Malaysia. Ju Kun had been living in Malaysia since February after he was hired as the co-fight choreographer on the series.
“It was an unfortunate circumstance that this happened,” said Brett Chan, who had worked with Ju Kun on numerous other films and praised his professionalism.
“In 19 years of being in the business, I have not come across someone so excellent and diverse and adaptive in his craft. His martial art is comparable to none, his creativity is spectacular. I can go on about his skill and his eye for detail, but given his resume and history, it speaks for itself,” said the Hitz International founder. “He was dependable, trustworthy and a great friend. He raised the bar in every aspect – in martial arts and as a person. He kept good people around him and good people were drawn to him for his incomparable work ethic. There is no one more I would have by my side in any aspect of my life”.
“Ju Kun is not only a treasure of martial arts talent and knowledge, he is a treasure of a person loved by many. We are all missing him right now and keeping each other strong,” Marco Polo creator and producer John Fusco stated.
Our thoughts and prayers are with his family - always.
