Am I the only one puzzled by the concept of S. Korean thugs?

    I don't think it's "Thugs" I think they just embraced the hip-hop lifestyle they see on television.

    I was in S.Korean and any of the Korean guy who knew a bit of english would say "wassup my nigga" I was shocked they new it but I figured and confirmed he was a big time hip hop fan. It's international now....and it's a bit scary.

    When I see these dudes trying to act all hood and tough... I lived in Songtan for 2 years and Koreans are not street lol. Seeing this video makes me kinda laugh but if it sells tickets and gets panties dropn then that's all that matters lol.

    Would a North Korean thug seem like a more feasible concept?

    what's wrong with it? I don't get it.

    I've never been to any part of Asia but grew up in areas heavily populated with Asians. Their gangs were just as scary as any of the other ones. Wouldn't it just be racist to consider them any less of a threat?

    Please explain, I'm at a loss here.
