Isn't his name Kim Young Guk? HuangLee 03:28, 31 January 2009 (UTC)

It's Kim Young Guk.Not Young-Guk Kim.It says Young Guk Kim in the police database,but it says it in that order.So,unless we're doing characters by surname that's invalid info. HuangLee 02:57, 5 February 2009 (UTC)

Done. A-Dust 03:12, 5 February 2009 (UTC)

Errors in names of Father and Son

First of all, we can know that Kim is surname with Niko's dialogue:"Where's Kim?(in mission "Dining Out")" And their name is Kim Young-Guk and Park Young-Guk.

In (both of North and South) Korean naming, Kim and Park is surname, not first name.

And how can be they're father and son with that name? Is Rockstar think that they sharing surname like Young-Guk?

You need to know about naming of Korea. There's specific something in naming. It's 'common syllable'. For example:

Kim Young-Guk[Father] → Kim Young-(something) or Kim (something)-Guk[Son] (common syllable can be second character or third in korean)

And that used in Father and Daughter, between brother or sister too. --Mr.Korean 05:14, December 14, 2009 (UTC)
