The Korean Mafia is an organized crime syndicate that appears in Operation Scarlet Wheel.
History[edit | edit source]
The Korean Mafia is one of the biggest criminal organizations in South Korea. Due to the requirement for most Korean males to be drafted into the military, the organization is highly trained for combat. Additionally, it is also made up of former members of the Korean Special Forces. Thanks to the governments war on crime in the 1990s, the Korean Mafia was one of many organizations that was forced to drastically reduce operations. In the early 2000s, the organization once again rose to prominence as their former leaders were released from prison.
On January 8, 2002, the organization seized the city hall subway station in Seoul, Korea and took hostages. Threatening to kill them if their demands weren't met, they sought to disperse police attack power and prevent the rescue efforts. Despite this, Rainbow successfully neutralized the threat and extracted the hostages.
