Sneak Peak at the Upcoming September/October 2013 Cover of Mode Lifestyle Magazine with Taekwondo Expert and Actor Master Sang Koo Kang and Actress Clara Lee

When Master Sang casually mentioned to MODE’s President & Editor-in-Chief, Alexander Michaels, during a barbecue that he would be playing a role in the new Hercules film by Brett Ratner amongst the myriad of other projects he had lined up this year we knew it would be even more challenging to finalize the cover shoot that had been on the works for some six months. Adding to the challenge was working with the hectic schedules of celebrity actress and model Clara Lee who was currently working on projects in South Korea.
We finally pulled it off and the shoot was arranged. A prime time South Korean TV show, “Age of Global Success”, sent their crew to Miami to film the Mode Lifestyle Magazine cover shoot as part of a 10-day process in which they followed Master Sang as he was chauffeured around and flown by helicopter to different locations to train his celebrity clients. Clara Lee took a few days off from her recordings and was bundled onto a plane by her team and deposited at the photographer’s studio for the shoot within a few hours of landing in Miami. She still managed to be the life of the party during the shoot and kept everyone entertained in between changes.
MASTER SANG KOO KANG:-
Creator of the “TNT” Martial Arts Form and Celebrity Trainer. Good friends with Brett Ratner (Director of the Rush Hour Movies, Transformer, X-Men and Last Stand). Next project is working on the feature film “Hercules”.
Brett Ratner once said of Master Sang, “As a Hollywood producer and director, I know what works and what doesn’t work… on the set and in real life. Master Sang and his TNT program works.”
