This thread is a continuation of Kkangpae under new leadership and name, same characters and same roleplay. Thank you to @Crocker for passing the torch and his efforts for Kkangpae: https://forum.gta.world/en/topic/21407-k-town-kkangpae-깡패/

 

In a similar way to Kkangpae, locals and loosely affiliated persons with the faction will also post on this thread to showcase their roleplay and how having a street group in the area impacts their characters. We will still be about providing roleplay for the area of Little Seoul.

History:

Little Seoul, also dubbed as Koreatown, possessed a criminal underworld that was controlled by a Korean-oriented organized crime group for decades, mainly operating through drug trafficking, car-jacking and also had their hands in arms trafficking. The people of Koreatown have always protected each other and even their appropriate businesses, especially after the Los Santos '92 Riots, the organized crime group that secretly controlled the area was no different than any ordinary citizen; some would say they were more protective.

 

In recent years, Derrick WangSteven PaekJay Jin, and Marshall Kyung rose into power as authoritative figures under Robert Hwang within the heart of Little Seoul, their main base of operations. Their long-standing grasp on the local community earning them favors, as well as coursing them into debt, with other criminal outfits within San Andreas’ hold. Tensions were constantly altering through the ranks of the organization from the death of Richard Hwang, the brother of Robert Hwang, as well as his wife counterpart. These figures had been long-standing members of the underground criminal Korean organization, both participating in the explicit contraband trafficking as well as personal hands in sexual exploitation of local females in poverty. 

 

His tragic death, as defined by law enforcement entities, failed to encompass the betrayal against Robert Hwang which assumingly is what led to the early demise of his brother by blood. The weight of responsibility weighed down as law enforcement locked onto Paek, forcing him into covering his tracks and removing himself from the eye of the public while Wang fled the country. In quick succession, the retirement of Jin led to mass disorganization within the criminal outfit, forcing Maddie and Jason Yeun into positions they were far from ready for.

 

The Yeuns swiftly climbed the ranks within the family, becoming major authoritative figures and holding their power in Koreatown, known and liked by the people due to their community presence for years. They worked closely with 213 Seoul Tigers which were under the guidance of Joshua Whang and Bruce Myong, however, experienced numerous clashes with the nearby Japanese and Filipino outfit, resulting in multiple incidents of gun violence and losses on all sides.

 

An attack orchestrated by Westside Palomino Satanas Gang on Jason Yeun and Avak Zakarian within Koreatown due to 213 Seoul Tigers’ conflict left the relationship between the groups fragmented, the automatic fire could be heard for blocks as Jason barely escaped with his life as his vehicle was plastered with AK47 rounds. Law enforcement entities sustained the deaths of 3 Special Weapons And Tactics operators within the mass amount of gunfire. 

 

As a result of the act of violence within the Koreatown community, and against one of the main figures, the Yeuns acted in unison to call a meeting with all members of the local community criminal outfits in an alliance that would plan to launch against the Satanas Gang.

 

This major incident would be the first of many that began to show the Korean-oriented organized criminal outfit turning into a loosely affiliated Asian-oriented street outfit. The Yeuns having risen to become prominent figures of leadership act out in breaking free of the chains of their predecessors in order to achieve their own agendas; money.

 

 

As time progressed, the Yeuns eventually retreated from their leadership positions, allowing for Marshall Kyung and Eric Hyun, to assume leadership of Seoul Park Boyz. With intentions of reaching new heights. Having broken free of the chains of their predecessors with the aid of the Yeuns, both Marshall and Eric apply their knowledge and experience in leading Seoul Park Boyz.

Asian Street Crime

Seoul Park Boyz 깡패 is the new generation of Korean criminals led by Marshall Kyung and Eric Hyun, after the Yeuns passed on the torch to the duo, to keep their power and Koreatown in their control from opposing groups who seek to take up the mantle. They continue to possess their throne in the criminal underworld of Koreatown but instead show a public image within Asian Street Crime. SPBZ has access to multiple sources of income, the main part of their operations consists of their influence through drug trafficking, counterfeits, as well as the car-boosting scene. Their operations remain as they had been for decades prior, however, their internal structure crumbled under the pressure of law enforcement which forced them into making money by any means, and quick cash had no place within the family they broke from.

The U.S. Department of Justice posted a section of the “Asian Street Gangs in Los Santos County: A General Overview and Training Manual for Patrol Personnel, Second Edition” publicly, which states:

NCJ Number: 149290

Author(s): W Unland

Date Published: 1990

Length: 265 Pages

Annotation

Many communities across the U.S. have begun to experience street gang and organized criminal activity involving members of immigrant Asian groups.

Abstract

Because of the dramatic increase in Asian and Pacific Islander populations, and the willingness of Asian gangs to travel great distances to commit crimes without the territorial constraints associated with other ethnic gangs, police officers need to be aware of the basic characteristics of these criminally oriented organizations. In this discussion, Asian street gangs are broadly grouped into two categories: Oriental and Pacific Islander gangs. Following a general discussion of the characteristics of these two types of Asian gangs, the manual describes in detail the organization, unique features, and criminal activities of the various Chinese, Vietnamese, Korean, Japanese, Cambodian, Filipino, and Samoan street gangs active in Southern San Andreas. 5 appendixes.

OOC Section

 

Seoul Park Boyz 깡패 aims to portray a realistic representation of Asian-American street groups within the area of Little Seoul after the local organized-crime family became defunct. SPBZ is an Asian group of street criminals based within Little Seoul, area code 213, which takes inspiration from numerous groups/gangs and news sources from crime in Los Angeles.

 

This faction is not a replica of Asian Boyz (ABZ), while the name and information shared are similar, the gang has no affiliations to Crips and we do not replicate the rivalries of ABZ. This faction is not limited to only characters of Korean ethnicity and will accept Vietnamese, Cambodian, Korean,  Laotian, and Filipino among others.

 

SPBZ is a continuation of Crocker's Kkangpae:

 

Any questions or concerns can also be directed to either @CJ or @MK.. If you intend on posting screenshots on the thread, then you must seek leadership approval before doing so. The faction is a continuation of the new & old generations of Asian criminals in Koreatown, led by former organized crime members.  You can message either of us for an invite to the Discord.

 

I wish to thank @honey. and @hipsxn for the creation of SPBZ.

Backstory of Koreatown

1992 Los Santos Riots


The 1992 Los Santos riots, sometimes called the 1992 Los Santos uprising, were a series of riots and civil disturbances that occurred in San Andreas County in April and May 1992. The unrest began in South Central Los Santos on April 29th, after a trial acquitted the four officers of the Los Santos Police Department for excessive force in the arrest and beating of Jim Queen, which had been videotaped and widely viewed on TV broadcasts. The rioting took place in several areas in the Los Santos metropolitan area. Widespread looting, assault, and arson occurred during the riots, which local police forces had difficulty controlling due to a lack of personnel and resources. The situation in the Los Santos area was only resolved after the San Andreas National Guard, the United States military, and several federal law enforcement agencies were deployed to assist in ending the violence and unrest.

Many Korean-Americans in Los Santos refer to the event as 'Sa-I-Gu', meaning "four-two-nine" in the Korean language (4.29), about April 29, 1992. Over 2,300 mom-and-pop shops run by Korean business owners were damages through ransacking and looting during the riots, sustaining close to $400 million in damages. During the riots, Korean-Americans received very little aid or protection from police authorities, due to their low social status and language barriers. Many Koreans rushed to Little Seoul after Korean-language radio stations called for volunteers to guard against rioters. Many were armed, with a variety of improvised weapons, handguns, shotguns, and semi-automatic rifles.

Television coverage of two Korean merchants firing pistols repeatedly at roving looters was widely seen and controversial. The New York Times said "that the image seemed to speak of race war, and or vigilantes taking the law into their own hands." The merchants reacting to the shooting of Mr. Yuen's wife and her sister were looters who had converged on the shopping centre where the shops were located. The riots have been considered a major turning point in the development of distinct Korean-American identity and community. Korean-Americans responded in various ways, including the development of new ethnic agendas and organization and increased political activism.
