He had a violent and a delinquent like personality and wanted to have his opponents beg for mercy in front of him. It was due to seeing his father begging to people that frustrated him, leading him to make others to do so. He also gets extremely violent when insulted. After being defeated by Mo-Ri, he has become scared of him and mumbles to himself "Monster".

He is later snapped out of this by Judge P, however, whenever Jin Mo-Ri is around, he will be completely subservient.

He holds Lee Soo-Jin in high regards as his master, and always helped her whenever he could. He even shield her from a rock that about to hit her.


Jin Mo-Ri

As soon as Man-Suk entered the preliminaries, Mo-Ri declared that he doesn't like him and saved Gam-Do from Man Suk. This increased the enmity between the two and it led to a fight. Later, during Man-Suk's fight, he was in control, but due to his violent nature he started torturing Gam-Do. This angered Mo-Ri and he entered the ring to fight. The fight resulted in Mo-Ri utterly defeating Man-Suk and inflicting trauma upon him. Gang Man-Suk was in a state where he kept mumbling that Jin Mo-Ri was a monster before Judge P snapped him out of it. But still reverts to being meek whenever Mo-Ri reprimands him.

Lee Soo-Jin

She was his master in Northern ITF Taekwondo that met with him years ago and trained him. Gang Man-Suk is grateful for this and humble around her, Although, It doesn't prevent him from teasing his master's cluelessness about the more modern south korea. Gang Man-Suk always call her 'master'.


When Man-Suk was a kid, he always saw his father act tough in front of the weak, but when a stronger person appeared, his father would beg for mercy which made Man-Suk refuse to beg to anyone, believing it shows weakness.

Man-Suk later became a normal street thug, but one day he was ambushed and hospitalized for thirty weeks but in truth it was Taek Jae-Kal who hospitalized him and the only person he begged to. When Man-Suk was healed, he was about to kill himself when he was beaten by Jae-Kal but then a mysterious person appeared and offered him the power to beat others and later appeared at Busan High School to have his revenge on Jae-Kal where he killed three hundred and was believed that he had learnt Northern ITF Taekwondo while on his missing year. It was then believed that he was still wearing the straight jacket while he was killing the students.


A Round With God

Man-Suk enter the God Of High School Tournament and was known to be the favorite to win the tournament due to his background and his talents. Man-Suk met Go Gam-Do who he kick but was saved by Jin Mo-Ri. Man-Suk walk away from Mo-Ri, thinking he was a weakling and walk toward Yu Mi-Ra who he ask why she was here to which she ignorant him. Man-Suk then took Mi-Ra sword, thinking it should be with a man, but was later taken by Mo-Ri but Man-Suk kick Mo-Ri which made him bleed and sent him flying. But Mo-Ri came back and took back the sword again.

Mi-Ra came behind Man-Suk and use Tong Be Kwon and did a air kick to Man-Suk face, but Man-Suk remain harmless and look at her panties which made her blush. Man-Suk start liking Mi-Ra even more and ask her out, but Mo-Ri came and pull down Man-Suk pant which didn't made Man-Suk upset and told him the inside count and if he wanna see which made Mo-Ri put his pant up fast.
