South Korean gangsters get more satisfaction from their line of work than the police, according to a survey published on Tuesday in local dailies.

According to the survey conducted among 109 jailed mobsters by the Korean Institute of Criminal Justice, 79.3 percent of gangsters said they were somewhat or very satisfied with their life in organized crime.

About 65 percent of police said they enjoyed their profession, according to a separate survey.

But mobsters have been looking to diversify their operations and are trying to muscle their way into shady stock deals or earn a share of corporate mergers and acquisitions, it said.

What new qualities could “official” mobsters possibly bring to the world of corporate theft?

  1. Joey says:

    For the 20.7% of gangsters who were not satisfied with their jobs, the most cited reason was the fact that they were dead.

  2. Mac Guy says:

    Damn it feels good to be a gangsta…

    The crooks dont have to file paperwork, the police do – I can see why they’re happier

    Who would be more apt to lie?
