Bai Jing, Star of 'Kung Fu Wing Chun', Killed by Husband

Very sad news for the martial arts movie community today: Chinese actress Bai Jing, star of 'Kung Fu Wing Chun', was killed in a murder-suicide by her husband yesterday.

Bai Jing portrayed Yim Wing Chun in 'Kung Fu Wing Chun' (2010) and was one of China's most famous female Kung Fu stars. 'Kung Fu Wing Chun' is a more romantic interpretation of the origins of Wing Chun, but it still features plenty of Wing Chun training sequences and action.

Some Chinese news outlets are reporting that Bai Jing's husband was upset with her after she requested a divorce.
