I recall reading that a number of those Koreans were former ROK military and theyre s'posed to be some pretty motivated folks.
They are indeed. These guys have worked for all they have, they work like dogs, and they don't go along with being ripped off. There are some pretty funny videos on you tube of the looters roaring down the road toward their shops, then the Koreans spray them down and it's all assholes and elbows as the mob flees. I knew if I put one of those on here though I'd get a bunch of crap email and it wasn't worth it.
