Cobra Kai Season 6 Cast: C.S. Lee Joins as Karate Kid Character

It’s been revealed that a character that first appeared in The Karate Kid will be played by C.S. Lee in Cobra Kai Season 6.

Deadline has revealed that Lee will be playing Master Kim Sun-Yung — the grandfather of Cobra Kai Season 5 character Kim Da-Eun. Sun-Yung was first mentioned in the original 1984 movie The Karate Kid, where a photo of him, played by Jun Chong, could be seen.

Sun-Yung also trained George Turner, who was franchise antagonist John Kreese’s commanding officer during flashbacks from the Netflix series. The character is presumed to be dead by this point in the timeline of Cobra Kai, so it’s possible he will appear in flashbacks rather than in the present.

Cobra Kai is written and executive produced by Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz, and Hayden Schlossberg via their production company, Counterbalance Entertainment. Will Smith, James Lassiter, and Caleeb Pinkett executive produce for Westbrook Entertainment along with Susan Ekins in association with Sony Pictures Television. Ralph Macchio and William Zabka also serve as executive producers.

What is Cobra Kai about?

In Cobra Kai, Ralph Macchio and William Zabka revisit their star-making roles from the iconic film franchise, The Karate Kid. The epic adversaries return to the dojo thirty years after the events of the 1984 All Valley Karate Tournament. A down-and-out Johnny Lawrence (Zabka) seeks redemption by reopening the infamous Cobra Kai karate dojo, reigniting his rivalry with a now-successful Daniel LaRusso (Macchio), who has been struggling to maintain balance in his life without the guidance of his mentor, Mr. Miyagi.
