Donahue had a rough child hood. His parent’s were in their mid 40’s when he was born and the village he grew up in was militarized so fun was not an option. Being young he tried to have fun any way he could but when he tried to play cork ball with some of the other kids he was beaten with the pole after the cork ball hit one of the officers walking the streets. When he arrived home after the beating his father decided it was time to put his son’s youthful energy towards something constructive.
His father taught him the martial art Taekgyeon hoping the strict style would calm his spirit. It helped but not as much as seeing some of the military police stop a drunken husband from killing his neighbors. At that moment Donahue decided he wanted to be a cop. So again his father began teaching him, this time however instead of martial arts he taught him how to shoot a target. Donahue was taught everything that his father learned from the American GIs during the Korean War.
When Donahue Ryung went to Seoul to join their police agency he went with strong recommendations from the military police that occupied his village. This wasn’t really needed as Mr. Ryung showed great skill in both hand to hand and marksmanship. After joining the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency he was transferred to KNP SWAT in Seoul where he excelled and received many metals for his quick actions and precise shots.
The last mission Officer Ryung was on was a hostage situation. Donahue took the shot that took down the leader of the gunmen when ordered but after the leader was taken down the rest of the gunmen opened fire upon the hostages. Donahue had trouble sleeping after that day.
After two days Donahue wasn’t coping able to cope, so he went to the Chief’s office to put in his notice of resignation when he overheard the Chief laughing as he talked on the phone about how all his debts were clean because his loanshark had died in a hostage situation. It took only a little searching before he found the order to shoot had come from the Chief himself. Hundred of innocents had died so his Chief wouldn’t have a loanshark hounding him.
After the “Chil Sung Pa” took down the Chief Donahue resigned from the Agency and took a flight to America. He wants to go to Nevada and find the grave of Sam Donahue his mother’s favorite American Jazz artist and his namesake. After that he’ll have a cigarette and look for a new job.
