Korean Gangsters, Politics, and Self-Mutilation

I am writing the last little bit of my novel left to be written before I set it aside for now. Well, while looking online for background information on the famous Korean folk hero/gangster/freedom-fighter Kim Du-Han, I found a very interesting article at TIMEAsia titled The Way of the Fists. It’s all about Korean gangsters and their folk-heroism, their connections with politicians, and their public shows of nationalism which often involve a very specific form of self-mutilation. Very interesting piece, in my opinion.
