Not to be confused with the Midtown Gangsters from GTA Chinatown Wars or the Kkangpae from GTA V.

The Korean Mob is a North Korean crime syndicate that operates out of Alderney City, Alderney.


Little is known about the Korean Mob, but their primary operations appear to be counterfeiting. The LCPD database suggests that they are also involved in the drug trade and are supplied by the Triads. The gang shares their Alderney City turf with the Spanish Lords, but gang wars between the two are an occasional occurrence.

Events of Grand Theft Auto IV

In 2008, Niko Bellic and Derrick McReary assisted one of their associates, Kim Young-Guk, in a counterfeiting operation. However, Niko later killed Kim on the orders of Jon Gravelli.

  • In The Ballad of Gay Tony, the Korean Mob are one of the gangs Luis Lopez can steal drugs from in Drug Wars.
  • The Korean Mob are possibly based on jopok (Korean:조폭, short for "jojikpokryeokbae, Korean:조직폭력배)", means "organized crime" in English) or Kkangpae (Korean:깡패), Korean mobsters or street thugs. However, these terms are used in South Korea, while the Korean Mob are said to have originated from North Korea.
  • More than likely, the Korean Mob are loosely based on Room 39, a North Korean governmental organization that allegedly engages in illicit activities to finance the country's slush fund, including counterfeiting and drug trafficking.
  • The favourite radio station of the Korean Mob is Electro-Choc.
