Yo man, I'm pretty sure this scene was originally storyboarded by the awesome Young Ki Yoon. With a revision pass by Seung Kim and Kihyun Ryu. With amazing Choi In Sung animation and your killer cleanup as well. Just wanna make sure those badboys get credit as well.

Oh snap! You're right. I got this scene confused with Choi's others (in regards to boarding). I totally forgot how much back and forth goes into this show at the boarding stage after i've moved on. Many apologies & thanks for the correction, man.

not bad, dudes were staying inside their attack zone so that bending was pointless. and they struck to immobilize limbs.

I hope this show doesn't get too out of hand and end up like Naruto with ridiculous powers. So far, so good though :D

Did you watch the first season ?, there was nothing like that, only when Ang fully awakened the Avatar state did he seem overpowered .. but he was rightfully so .. and it was only for one episode XD

And even with the ridiculous powers in Naruto, it's cool because a lot of elite ninja characters have them .. not just Naruto or the main villain, watching them clash together is a lot of fun.

Yeah, I've seen most of the first season. I know the first season wasn't that crazy. Everything worked well, but like Naruto it stayed pretty consistent through out season 1, but when season 2 came out, it got ridiculous. I just hope the same things doesn't happen, but I doubt it will get too out of control.

Don't worry, it might actually get more interesting with the introduction of the Chi-blockers from the anti-benders faction, those guys can prevent Benders from using their Chi to bend by hitting them with their bare-fists sealing their Chi flow, which means more amazingly choreographed hand-to-hand combat and a little less bending XD

As for Naruto, funny thing that till now (Gaara VS Lee) from the first seaon Chunnin exam stands as one of the best fights in Naruto , period (actually one of the best fights in action anime IMO).

Was that backwards? I saw it on Korranation a few days ago and I clearly remember that ferret hissing/growling at the end. It was cute.

Also just wanted to ask: It's a pity that these great korean animators don't seem to have blogs or share their work on the internet in any way, unlike most of the awesome american artists such as yourself. It sure would be awesome to se it :(

I'm pretty sure korean artists do. There's plenty of artbooks... The only thing is that it is primarily sold in Korea and the language is Korean and the websites are Korean.
You can see it if you get a Korean friend to show what sites to go to.

I know. I do my best by trying to understand Korean dramas without english subtitles. It's much easier than it looks. Add -yo to everything, say 'bo' and za za za "Fighting" a lot and cry whenever 'saranghae' is mentioned. Then obsessively watch another Korean drama.
