    [2] INTRODUCTION
    =====================================================================
    
    Jhun is a new character in KOF series. He is one of the member of
    Korea team which consist of Kim, Chang and Choi. He wanted to show
    Kim that his method of re-educating his student, Chang and Choi is
    not effective. So, he join the team to prove it.
    Although some of his moves are same with Kim, he do have some really
    new moves that never be seen before in any fighting game. His 
    command/special move is not easy to perform when you first control 
    him but once you get familiar with him, you'll be surprise on how 
    powerful and flexible his moves are. This few words best describe
    Jhun,
    
    SILENCE AS AN EAGLE, MOVING AS A TIGER

    it to link to counter combo, pressing the opponent in the corner or
    just for building up the super bar.
    
    Flying Tiger Strike: (tiger)u + C (******)
    Jhun will do a jumping downward kick. Comes out fast and it must be

    as fast as Flying Tiger Strike.
    
    Ambush Tiger Strike: (tiger)d + C (*****)
    Jhun will do a sliding sweeping kick. It has good reach, about 2/3
    screen. Good for counter attack projectiles and pressing opponent.
    Incredibly useful when follow up with other Tiger Strike especially
    the Escape Tiger Strike.
    
    Escape Tiger Strike: (tiger)b + A (*****)
    Jhun will do a low level Flying Dragon Step and will immediately jump
    backward. Has very good priority and it can only be block high. 
    Jhun's ultimate escaping attack. Do it after his Tiger Strikes.
    It has autoguard priority and will win against any incoming attack

    while. Good for dodging projectiles. Note that it will not build up 
    the super bar.
    
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    [3.4] Desperation Moves
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Phoenix Nail Kick: qcf, qcf + B/D (*****)
    Jhun will perform various Eagle Kicks. Good damage even if blocked.
    Has some lag but if you do it in a good distance you'll be safe.
    Do it as soon as you have stock. Looks cool.
    
    Phoenix Heaven Dance Kick: j + qcf, qcf + B/D (***)
    Identical to Kim's Phoenix Flying Heaven Kick. Jhun will kick up the
    opponent with various kicks. Has long lag. Only use it as a follow up
    after his Flying Dragon Step.
    
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    [3.5] Striker Moves
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Hiding Tiger Ambush: B + C (***)
    When the opponent is near, he will do Empty Dust.
    When the opponent is far away, he will do Flying Tiger Strike.
    Best use when the opponent is within attack range because you can 
    immediately do a low level attack during his Flying Tiger Strike. In 
    this way, the opponent will get hit either blocking low or high.

    =====================================================================
    [5] STRATEGIES
    =====================================================================
    
    Please note that the following moves are not combos. They are a
    a series of moves intended to confuse the opponent who are defending
    themself so that they'll get hit. The same strategies may have 
    several variations. You should perform them interchangeably for
    maximum effective.
    
    * (tiger)d + C, after hitting the opponent immediately do b + B.
    * (tiger)d + C, after hitting the opponent immediately do u + C.
    * (tiger)d + C, after hitting the opponent immediately do C then
      follow up with u + C.
    A very tricky and confusing high low attack move. The opponent can't 
    attack you even if they have able to block all the move, so abuse it. 
    You can always do b + A to escape or retreat from the opponent.
    
    * j + C/D -> d + B -> d + B -> d + A -> f + hold B -> u + C.
    * j + C/D -> d + B -> d + B -> d + A -> f + hold B -> d + C -> 
      u + C.
    Another high low attack. Remember that you can always perform b + A 
    to escape or retreat from opponent. Good for guard crushing.
    
    * j + C&D, once hit the opponent immediately do d, d + B -> u + C.
    * j + C&D, once hit the opponent immediately do d, d + B -> C ->
      u + C.
    A very quick high low surprise attack. Comes out fast. Good for
    fighting turtles.
    
    * qcb + hold B -> u + C
    * qcb + hold B -> C
    Another surprise attack.
    
    * (corner)(eagle)u + C, repeat it until opponent move then do 
      qcf, qcf + B/D.
    Need good timing but you can substitute his (DM/SDM) with C&D for
    safety.
    
    * (corner)(eagle)C/u + C, when opponent try to come near press D.
    With Upper Eagle Kick, the opponent will not be able to jump out and
    with Taiji Break, the opponent will not be able to come near. Even if
    the opponent do C&D, chances are that he will still get hit if you
    are doing (eagle)C -> (eagle)u + C.
    SF3, Alex's quote: YOU CAN'T ESCAPE!
    
    * (tiger)d + C -> b + A -> C/u + C -> hold A ->
      (eagle)C/D -> u + C -> f + hold B ->
      (tiger)C/u + C -> d + C -> b + A ->
      (eagle)u + C -> u + C -> f + B -> ...
    Jhun's practising routine. Remix it as much as you can. Just beware
    that you are not playing with an easy to angry person with this
    routine. May the force be with you!
    
    * super cross-up jump, d + B -> d + B...
    Do a super cross-up jump, aim for the opponent's back shoulder and do
    d + B. If you hit the opponent, Jhun will automatically bounce to the 
    opponent's back, aim for the back shoulder and do d + B again. Repeat
    this until you get tired. It's kinda fun to play with this strategy.

    [6.1] Bugs
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    * Freeze bug (improbable)
    Ready for your Tiger Stunt then when the opponent is near you and 
    while he is executing a multi-hits move such as King's hcb + B/D or 
    Mary's dp + B/D, execute the Escaping Tiger Attack which is (tiger)b 
    + A. Voila! Jhun will be freezing immediately if you have success to 
    time it properly (i forgot the exact timing, guess you'll able to 
    figure it out). Note that your opponent can invoke this bug in 
    order to win you by end of time.
