Acs is still around and always will be but MBZ is inactive... There are some small sets here and there but they aren't worth talking about.

32 is coming up though..

I dont know when and why MBZ became the laughing stock but back in the early 2000s, they did their share of dirt. Some of my homies used to bang MBZ and i know for a fact that they put in alot of work. Muthafuckers used to fear them on the mean streets of Ktown, so if u ignorant foos dont know, i suggest u keep it shut cuz if u crossed them on the street, even today, i bet ya would be shitting bricks n shit.. Kissing ass and be like " ohhhh i heard u guys were craaaazy "... They are down to about 5 heads today but they were different like 9 years ago.

when i lived in ktown, it was 18st shatto park locos that had it on lock. they even crossed out an mbz hit up. a lot of koreans moved out of koreatown after the riots in 1992. this is the reason why koreatown gangbangers aren't as plentiful as they used to be. plus koreans don't bang like the mexicans or blacks. you don't have korean family members where your brothers, cousins, uncles, or dad are all in gangs. on the contrary, koreans have more family members being college graduates than gang members. the gang life is a phase that SOME korean kids go through but for the majority don't hold on to. the ones who stay in the criminal world will work for organized crime groups. the others will simply grow up and pursue other like things like college, work, etc.

Im from the old school homey, KoreanPlayboyz.. hardly a youngbuck. Which generation u from. I was referring to the older heads of MBZ, the OG members. Those foos were bout it and they put it alot of work in the early 2000. I dont think you're too familiar with the Ktown scene.

Cuz some of them are serving long sentences and the rest of them are grown out of it. KOreans arent like blacks and mexicans where they gonna bang for life like bums. They had their share of fun so it's time to move on. No need to recruit.

We Koreans dont give a flying fuck about South central or banging4life and any of that useless shit. For alot of gangsters such as the mexicans/blacks, they were born into the gang without a choice. Their fathers, uncles, and cousins were all in it so it's only natural. BUt for us Koreans, it's different. We get into the life for different reasons. IT's not because we came from a broken home ( play the sad violin ) or any of that shit. Many of us come from good families with money yet we choose to bang cuz it's like an adventure. To us, it's just something do to, a way to rebel or just wanting to prove ourselves.. As ya all know, Korean parents are very hard on their kids from a very young age, making us study fuckin 24/7, can't play or any of that shit cuz economic status is very important to Koreans. Somewhat superficial, yes, but that's how we are raised to be. So naturally, once kids reach a certain age, they get tired of all that shit and start to rebel and the best way to do it is to hang with the bad crowd...

We bang because we feel like it.. it's an adventure.. We dont bang because we have to.. ALot of us grow out of it to take the right path but the ones that doesnt, they get into organized crime. None of this gangbanging 4 life BS. It's about the business once we get old. $$$

there is organized crime in koreatown. it is just really well hidden and behind the curtains. the ones who get caught are the ones who gain a lot of attention. media and crime wars are usually what catches the feds interest real quick. someone has to take care of all the illegal gambling, loan sharking, extortion, whorehouses, and drugs. in koreatown, you can bet your last dollar it's not the chinese. the general public don't know about them and that's good for business. the less they know the better. there was a godfather figure in koreatown but for the most part, no one even knew his name. that is probably the reason why he's not in jail and will most likely pass away in his sleep. street gangs have balls, they represent, they're down to blast, and don't give a fuck. a lot of people especially in cali, can't shake off that mentality. but when you are thinking about getting to that next level, you have to think in terms of money. especially after you messed up your record and have no other options. by deciding to commit crimes to earn a living, one of the most IMPORTANT things to remember is the code of silence. a crime organization can only survive by their ability to stay in the dark. to all those who aren't satisfied with their fortune and still ache for fame. they are the ones who eventually get killed by their own people or get thrown in jail for the rest of their lives. look what happened to john gotti. think about it, when you are walking around with a shaved head, tattoos, dressed like a cholo what are you doing? you are putting a target on your back for your enemies and begging the cops to harass you. when you look like an everyday person no one even pays attention to you. for all they know, you are just another restaurant owner. but you yourself know that you got a nice car, a nice suit in your closet, bank rolls of money hidden in various places and the power to have people killed without getting caught.

old school? what, cuz u were in KP and crossed over into KPB?? foo, all those guys u call "hyung", theyre my age or a year or two younger. u think your "old school" cuz u claim KPB? foo i was already there at Players, Intercrew, Icon, Renaissance, Koray, etc. when shit would always go down at one point in the night. since u claim KPB, u must know silent. yeah, he's my age. along with loony, kicker, rascal, all them foos... by the way, whats your placa anyways??? if u really were one of the few that got into kpb after kp died out, then i will give u credit that u musta proved yourself at one point that u were down for ur shit. only the down ones from kp got into kpb.

yup, ktown gangs change with every generation it seems. the one gang that seems to be continuous is ACS. i think korean gangs are not very good at keeping a gang alive by recruiting youngsters. they roll with their generation and don't even bother to get in touch with the next. so all the youngsters hear all these stories of gangs growing up and eventually grow up to start their own gang.

i agree with this.

also, similar to how viet gangs do it,

once 1 "generation" grows up, the older heads start a new gang with youngsters. the youngsters are the next "generation" of the gang, but they take on a new name usually. very few korean gangs last more than a couple generations bc of this.

the viet gangs in OC are the same. the older OG's dont let the youngsters rip their name, and make em function under another gang.

theres alotta good logical reasons to do this...use ur imagination.

yeah like how turtle from JeFroX started up MentalBoyZ. some guys from LGKK started up Trey Deuce Mob. word was though that turtle was a minor factor in JeFroX and that he was straight up kind of crazy in a stupid way. i heard in prison he would do things like rub his fingers across objects and yell "touching things!"

I agree. imo there are rarely any korean dudes that wanna bang or join a gang (which is a good thing to be honest). thats probably the problem. korean gangs grow up together as a group and die out together with the same group because of the fact that there are rarely any koreans that wanna join in the 1st place . not that they want to recruit but because there really aren't any options in keeping the gang alive.

also the problem with these koreatown based gangs is that it's almost 80 percent fobs. you won't that many heads that would wanna be down.
