|Not to be confused with the Korean Mob from GTA IV.|
They can be only found on Ginger Street in Little Seoul, usually by the apartment complex across the street from the car wash/convenience store. They're also found in Blaine County hanging out with the O'Neils.
The name Kkangpae literally translates into "Thug" in Korean language, and usually refers to unorganized street gangs, like the group depicted in-game. Like most gangs, they will become hostile and shoot if the player hangs around too close.
Their members, just like the Los Santos Triads, are formed by both young and elderly gangsters, and they're usually equipped with knives or pistols if they're encountered in their turf. When the player face them in the missions, they're armed mainly with Micro SMG's and shotguns. They're involved in credit fraud, car theft, extortion and robberies.
