May Lee Jinju
Template:CharacterInfobox In this Korean name, the family name is Lee.
"May" Lee Jinju (Hangul: 이진주; Hanja: 李珍珠, li Jinju; Japanese: メイ・リー・ジンジュ, Mei Rī Jinju), usually referred to as just May Lee (メイ・リー), is a character who was introduced in The King of Fighters series. May is depicted as a perky teenager who fights for justice using Taekwondo. She is unique within The King of Fighters for her ability to change into a separate Hero Mode, in which she dons large gloves and a red scarf.
May Lee's main reason for creation was to please Korean KOF fans, in addition to Eolith desiring for a Korean fighter. Originally, May Lee started out as an "idol-like visual fighter", or more specifically, like a "Korean Athena." Although her final design was far from the original concept, Eolith was pleased with the end result. May Lee Jinju was named after from the person who was in charge of Eolith at the time.<ref>https://kofaniv.snk-corp.co.jp/english/character/index.php?num=maylee</ref>
