Chang was once a feared and violent criminal in Korea. He was spotted by Kim Kaphwan from a prison's surveillance footage and he wanted to use Chang's strength "for justice". Though Chang easily broke out of prison, he was caught by Kim and forced to undergo Kim's "Rehabilitation project" in KOF. During this time, he befriends a fellow convict who was also caught by Kim, Choi Bounge. Together, they initially schemed for ways of escape but they eventually mellow out and enjoy their companions' company -with protests saying otherwise. Because both him and Choi convinced Kim to join the Garou Team in The King of Fighters XI, they appear in the Garou Team's ending celebrating with them at the PaoPao Cafe.

Chang is gross. Put some shoes on. He might be my least favorite SNK character of all time, besides Choi. To call Chang a convincing retard is an understatement, and I'm not even talking about his good looks. The way he acts, sounds, and fights is distinctively retarded. I usually like using wrestlers& "big dudes" in fighting games, but Chang just sucks. Visually, he's nothing more than poor man's Zangief who ate an entire McDonald's restaurant. I also never liked how the chain of his weapon is invisible when he swings it during his special move (finally fixed in KOF XIV)... and how players have to "use their imagination" to see it.... Meh. 

Besides being an obviously "differently shaped" character in the KOF series, I just don't see the appeal of Chang. I mean seriously, who has a poster of Chang hanging in their room? (And if anyone did, I think it'd be time to worry about them). On a side note, I think the random "Smart Chang" alternate striker design (from KOF2000) is actually kinda cool. Too bad they didn't change Chang up entirely and go with that design for a while, with Chang "finally cleaning up his life"... losing all that weight, and finally becoming "cool". Until that day, Chang's TFG rating will remain as is.
