Kim Young-Guk (김영국) is a North Korean national who tried to bring "Superdollars", or counterfeit US dollars made overseas, into Liberty City. The first time he tried, in 2003, he failed and was arrested, but fled. The second time however, in 2008, he got help from a friend of his father, Derrick McReary and Derrick's friend Niko Bellic. Derrick and Niko had to protect Kim's boat from the other attacking boats. After doing this successfully, Derrick and Niko followed Kim to his docking point in Industrial, Bohan.

Later, Kim became the leader of the Korean Mob in Alderney. Gambetti Family leader, Don Jon Gravelli saw the Korean Mob as a threat and wanted to eliminate Kim. Gravelli soon obtained governmental clearance to do so from his friend working at United Liberty Paper and sent Niko Bellic to Kim's HQ in the restaurant Mr. Fuk's Rice Box.

Bellic headed over to the restaurant and after killing all the guards inside, he caught up with Kim, who was fleeing the restaurant. During his last moments, Kim pleads to Niko by telling him he is "good friends with Irish junkie man", meaning Derrick McReary. However Niko ignores him (if Niko had killed Derrick during the mission Blood Brothers, he replies sardonically to Kim that "Irish junkie man is dead") and then kills him. After this, the Korean mobs become hostile to Niko if he fires or start a fight in their territory.

His name may have been inspired by North Korea's (in 2008) dictator Kim Jong-il, or even more likely "Gook", a derogatory and racist term for Asian people.
