Asian gangs in Rowland Heights

Home > Asian Gangs > Rowland Heights

Rowland Heights is an unincorporated community located in and below the Puente Hills in the San Gabriel Valley, in Los Angeles County. The total land area of Rowland heights is 9.0 sq. miles. Once predominantly Anglo and Hispanic, this area has gradually become one of the Chinese centers in the greater Los Angeles. Originally formed by the stream of business expansions from Monterey Park (now a heavily mainland Chinese enclave), which is the undisputed “Chinatown” of Los Angeles, Rowland Heights has become an area comparable to a “Chinatown” by itself largely populated by Taiwanese. Locals refer to Rowland Heights as “Little Taipei”, due to its high concentration of Taiwanese restaurants and businesses.

Since the 1980s, many upper-middle-class immigrants from Taiwan and South Korea have settled in the hillside homes of Rowland Heights (and in neighboring regions such as Hacienda Heights, Walnut, and Diamond Bar). Also, Rowland Heights has also attracted immigrants from mainland China because the area is advertised in China as having good homes and convenient shopping. Additionally, working-class Latinos have settled in the lower, flat sections. The city has developed an eclectic suburban “Chinatown” and “Koreatown”, mostly in the form of upscale strip malls mostly on Colima Road, with another concentration around Nogales Street.

According to the 2008 census, the total population of Rowland Heights is 48,414 with 50.4% of residents declared as Asian, 22.6% are White, 1.5% are Black or African American, and 34.5% are Hispanic. According to the census, 53.3% of residents are foreign born. Approximately 31.9% of residents have a bachelor’s degree or higher and 84% of residents have a high school degree. Also, 9.7% of families and 10.8% of individuals live below the poverty line.

    Lol at all these kids saying they “run Rowland”, what’s there to run? All those Asian spots on Colima? All those beautiful parks? All those 500,000k homes? Rowland has one lower income area (Batson st.) which is a very small street with little to no gang activity unless your a turtle in the asian market but don’t tell that to a “gangster” from here they seem to thing it’s as ghetto as South L.A. with “gang war” at every corner, lol.

    You all are real brave hiding behind your computer screens aren’t you? Come on now, time to grow up, finish school, get a job, stay out of prison. The mentality used in these comments is the same mentality of Lifer inmates.

    HKB – also known as Hankook Boys. Is a smaller Korean gang in the San Gabriel valley area. Mainly in the city of Rowland heights and hacienda heights. The gang appeared around the mid 90s. With members up to 25-30 approximately. It currently has 5 generations. Only 4th and 5th generations are active still. They have allies in the west Los Angeles area. ACS and MBZ. This unity is known as HAM. (Hankook, Asian, Mental) originally this Nick name was named by gang task force ..(they had special unit specifically for these 3 gangs.) They pretty much don’t get along with other Korean gangs. They’re main Korean rivals are KOS – ki*lah outlaws, 32Lgkk – Trey duce. In the San Gabriel valley area HKB main rivals are the WC – wah chings and WD – white dragon. Hankook boys most infamous generation is the 4th. Also known as ki*lah side. To this date hankook boys are one of the few Korean gangs that are still active. Although smaller than most gangs. They are known to have violent members.
