MH370: Jet Li's stunt double, Ju Kun is among passengers

KUALA LUMPUR: 32-year-old, Jet Li's stunt double, Ju Kun from China is among the passengers of the missing Malaysia Airlines (MAS) flight MH370.

According to Deadline, the veteran martial arts expert and assistant martial arts choreographer had completed a day of training and choreography and made a quick trip from Pinewood Studios in Malaysia to his home in Beijing.

He boarded the flight that disappeared 35,000 feet over Vietnam.

Kun was flying home to begin production on the new Netflix series Marco Polo in the next few weeks.

Marco Polo creator John Fusco told Deadline "All of us on location in Malaysia are devastated as we go through this agonising wait.

Ju Kun is an integral and beloved member of our Marco Polo family, and on behalf of Harvey Weinstein and Netflix, we are all profoundly shocked and saddened.”

Ju Kun has worked as Jet Li’s stunt double in films like Fearless, The Expendables, The Grandmaster and The Forbidden Kingdom, and Fusco said Ju Kun’s mastery of several martial arts styles made his choreography unique.

"All of us on location in Malaysia are devastated as we go through this agonizing wait. Right now we are rallying around his wife, Li Ping as she awaits answers in Kuala Lumpur. Our hearts and prayers are also with all of the other missing passengers and their families," Fusco added

MAS Flight MH370, carrying 227 passengers and 12 crew, went missing en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing about an hour after taking off from the KL International Airport at 12.41am Saturday.

It should have landed in Beijing at 6.30am the same day.
