"If a Nation is a Gang, a Gang should be able to become a Nation. I want to establish a Nation of a certain class. Hey, let's build a country of our own. Ken."
"I don't force anyone to follow me. I fight for what I believe in, and to protect those who need my help! I force nobody to fight beside me. Everyone's free to their own opinions! And I fight beside only those who share mine! But I help all those who ask me, and I ask for nothing in return!"
After his parents' death when he was 13, Ken lost everything. He became embroiled in a world of violence, constantly fighting one group of thugs after another. Then he met Yumin, the only person left in his life that he cared for. When Ken finally confessed his love, Yumin turned him down with the reason that she plans on moving to Korea and becoming a police officer. Ken decides to drop out of high school, and flies to Korea in order to become an officer himself. Unsurprisingly, as a high school dropout he doesn't get the job and ends up slumming it in Korea.
One day, after helping out an old store owner getting extorted from a local gang, Ken is then made the boss of a small gang by a man named Tae-Soo. Ken now finds himself fighting local gang bosses, protecting the ones he cares for and making sure Yumin never finds out, otherwise he'll lose the girl he loves and get arrested.Sun-Ken Rock

have been scanlated with Boichi's blessing by Japanzai and are available to read for free on his official site
and Japanzai's reader. Japanzai also officially scanlated the three Sun-Ken Rock spinoffs:
- Sun-Ken Rock Gaiden – Pickaxe Calamity, a NSFW sci-fi fanservice comic focusing on a NEET who gets his hands on some Power Armor and becomes the "Dango Knight"
- Sun-Ken Rock Gaiden - Yumin, yet another NSFW fanservice sidestory focusing on Yumin going on an undercover police job
- I Want Feed Yumin, a shojo styled, somewhat suggestive yet SFW series of sidestories concentrating on a character that could very easily be replaced by the reader taking Yumin out on dates to various Korean restaurants. Much attention is paid to ridiculously detailed descriptions of Korean Food Porn and how freakin' cute Yumin is.
