See Ki Hong Lee run his ass off in 'The Maze Runner'

New movie based on the popular young adult sci-fi book series

If you're thinking about heading to the movies this weekend, buy yourself a ticket to The Maze Runner. The movie based on the popular post-apocalyptic young adult sci-fi novel by James Dashner, features our friend (and former Angry Reader of the Week) Ki Hong Lee in various states of look cool and running his ass off.

The Maze Runner is about a group of teenage boys who are dropped into a place known as the Glade, one by one, with no memories of their lives or the outside world. Surrounded by a massive maze, they must figure out the mystery of their predicament to survive. It's fairly typical dystopian teen fiction with a Lord of the Flies twist.

Ki Hong plays character named Minho. It's not only a major role, but he is easily one of the most memorably badass characters in the movie. Also kind of awesome that he has a decidedly Korean name.

Here's a few glimpses of him in the trailer:

I'm obviously not the target demographic, but dude, my 12-year-old self would have loved this movie. Hell, my current adult self rather enjoyed it too. Wanna see an Asian kid get some pretty decent screen time for once in a major Hollywood picture? Go see Ki Hong Lee in The Maze Runner. Congratulations, buddy.
