― Kwang to James Bond[src]

Film biography

Disguised as an Asian drug lord, Kwang, like his partner Loti, is a Hong Kong narcotics agent who has spent years trying to infiltrate drug baron Franz Sanchez's operations.

As Sanchez finalizes a deal to monopolize the drug trade across the Pacific with his new partners, Kwang insists on seeing Sanchez's operation up close as a gesture of good faith. Sanchez senses Kwang has other intentions, but doesn't intend to let the Hong Kong agent get wise even after offering to show the Asians his main distribution center.

When Bond tries to kill Sanchez, Loti and another ninja knock Bond unconscious. They take Bond to their safe house for questioning. Kwang furiously dresses down the rogue agent for jeopardizing their entire effort. Fallon, their MI6 contact tries to sedate Bond, but Heller, Sanchez's chief of operations, attacks the house, killing the contact and the ninja. Kwang tells Loti to fight back so they don't take her alive, but she only manages to kill two soldiers before being easily shot by Heller. Kwang bites into a cyanide capsule, killing himself, rather than face Sanchez's wrath and Sanchez shoots his body in frustration.
