DHS- Koreans for United Freedom led by Kang in Olympus Has Fallen olympus 3049

The K.U.F.'s terrorist operatives shooting at Mike Banning's position

The Koreans for United Freedom, also known as the K.U.F, was a North Korean paramilitary terrorist organization that wanted the United States of America to pay for what they considered unreasonable and a threat to society after the U.S. tried to assist with the growing conflict between the North and the South sides of Korea.


The organization was formed and conceived sometime during the twenty-first century and how its operatives managed to enter the shores of the United States is still unbeknownst. Whether the various militia that made up the countless legions of North Korean terrorists were either former commandos, mercenaries or a mixture of both is up for debate.

Despite being composed of North Korean mercenaries/commandos/terrorists, it appears that they are not under the direct orders of Pyongyang as the DPRK denied any involvement when Acting President Allan Trumbull contacted North Korea via diplomatic channels.
