Organized crime in Korea
A Kkangpae (Korean: 깡패), also known as Ggangpae, Gangpae, or Gangpaeh, is the name of literally either the South Korean mafia or street gang. The Korean mafia operates primarily in Seoul, Busan, and Daegu, although it is known to operate in Tokyo, Japan; New York City, New York; and Los Angeles, California. The South Korean mafia is well known for its proficient martial arts skills, ruthless extortion, and loan sharking tactics. Since the early 2000s, the South Korean entertainment industry has regularly popularized the South Korean mafia, through films and television.

Ask a Korean!: Gangsters and Thugs, Criminals and Hoods
Dear Korean,I've been doing some reading for a project and came across a reference to the Korean mafia. Can you give us a little primer on them? What makes them different from other organized crime syndicates? Their history? What types of services they provide? How they are structured? How they are seen by the Korean society? How influential they are in contemporary Korean politics? how, and if, they operate trans-nationally (especially in Southeast Asia)?HHCDear HHC,First, let the Korean direct you to Curtis Milhaupt's The Dark Side of Private Ordering: An Institutional and Empirical Analysis of Organized Crime.
