Not to be confused with the Korean Mob from GTA IV.

The Kkangpae (Korean: 깡패) is a South Korean criminal organization based in Los Santos, appearing in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.

They appear as the main group of antagonists of the Los Santos Summer Special update for Grand Theft Auto Online.


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, shotguns, Assault Rifle, Combat MG and Sniper Rifle. They're involved in credit fraud, car theft, extortion and robberies.

Events of GTA Online

During the events of GTA Online, the Kkangpae makes an appearance during the heist setup mission, Fleeca Job - Kuruma, they will be guarding an armored Kuruma in a parking lot in Del Perro, that the GTA Online Protagonist must steal to use as an getaway vehicle during The Fleeca Job. The Kkangpae will attack the player in the Fugitives.

They later appear, again in a heist setup, in the Prison Break - Station mission. They are trying to export Rashkovsky's Casco out of the country. The player must invade their ship in the Port of Los Santos and retrieve the vehicle.

They are also Lamar's buyers for the Lowriders in Slow and Low.

They are also one of the gangs who tried to steal marchandise from the players in the SecuroServ Special Cargo, the Vehicle Cargo missions and the Resupply mission of the GTA Online: Bikers DLC.

Events of GTA V

The Kkangpae do not play any important role in the main story of the game, however, they sometimes attack the The Hen House business in Paleto Bay whether it belongs to Michael, Franklin, or Trevor.

Events of GTA Online (after GTA V)

The Kkangpae reappear in GTA Online: Gunrunning, GTA Online: Smuggler's Run and GTA Online: After Hours along with the Vagos and The Lost MC where they steal the player's merchandise and Nightclub goods.

They later reappear in the GTA Online: The Diamond Casino & Resort update, in the Casino Work missions given by Agatha Baker for The Diamond Casino & Resort.

The Kkangpae reappear in GTA Online: Los Santos Summer Special as the main antagonists of a series of missions called A Superyacht Life, with the exception of the first mission where most of their members are killed by the protagonist, including their Boss.

Despite the death of their boss and most of their members, the Kkangpae reappear during the events of the Los Santos Tuners update as one of KDJ's Dealer Contracts, where they pay the protagonists after they are given the printing plates stolen from the army. They also appear as the antagonists in another contract, in which they defend one of their bosses from the player who is attempting to acquire his elevator keycard to access the Union Depository.
