Sun Ken Rock Manga

The story revolves around Ken, the main character, an upper-class man who is orphaned at a young age due to his family’s yakuza involvement. He became a delinquent in high school, known for his fights. The only thing that motivates him to act is his romantic attachment to classmate Yumi.

Upon learning that she had decided to move to Korea to become a police officer, Ken left his life in Japan behind and attempted to follow in Yumin’s footsteps; due to unforeseen circumstances, he accidentally becomes the head of a local gang and tries to hide it from Yumin. As leader, the band is renamed the Sun-Ken Rock Group. At first, the gang consisted of several people and did not even have a base.

As the story progresses, the San Ken Rock Gang grows larger as they recruit new members and take over other gangs’ territories and investments. Sun-Ken Rock Group acquires an MMORPG company, a large casino, one of the largest television media companies in Korea, and also gains political support, making them the most powerful gang in Korea.

However, throughout this, Ken has tried his best not to reveal himself to Yumin as the leader of the gang, as she despises gangs. Ironically, Yumin was groomed to be Korea’s front line factory to help his yakuza group lay the groundwork for expanding their influence in South Korea; due to Yumin’s refusal to join the “family business”, their plans stalled as the various members either tried to take her back to Japan or tried to bring her back under yakuza control.

Between Ken’s ascension, he and Yumin bonded, and Yumin began to develop feelings for Ken. However, things have always been complicated by interference from Ken’s gang activities and/or Yumin’s yakuza connections. The series, despite being very adult-oriented, upholds many shōnen-style values, such as the importance of friendship and the notion of a “real man”.
