Translator specifies that this isn't about Burning Sun specifically, but it's a helpful statement to understand some of the context and moving parts of this scandal, which will hopefully incriminate more participants in the nightlife industry.

 

In 2016 Jo Wonkyu went undercover to research for his novel “Made in Gangna,” as a call girl carpool (service that would drive drop off girls to night establishments and/or locations they would meet clients) driver for 6 months. He stated that the Burning Sun situation was just the tip of the iceburg.

 

“20 something year old pimps would place underage girls into clubs and make them drink GHB. Then they would approach rich men and make them pay to have sex with the girls that they would say were of age. There were many cases where they would illegally film the sex and then blackmail the guy. There is one street in Gangnam that is all officetels that have paid for sex happening. Amongst call girls that prostitute, there are even elementary school girls. The clubs all have a network of contact but are separated so that if they are caught they can cut them out easily. There are also quite a lot of different technology that allows for videos and evidence to be wiped. As Gangnam clubs became a big business there are many instance where idol celebrities become shareholders of important clubs. Idol members of group S are shareholders and many artists from management company Y are also shareholders.”

And some people are still pro-prostitution... Men don't give a shit if the girls are underage, if they are from troubled backgrounds, or got human trafficked, they are only objects to be fucked anyway. Disgusting.

Tbh that's exactly what I've thought about when I heard about spycam videos for the first time. From what was revealed so far I guess it's not the case in BS situation tho (or maybe not).

Well. Trully hope they all will be revealed.

Girl hush... in countries were prostitution is legal.. PIMPING is still illegal.

And sex trafficking and anything sexual involving underage girls will ALWAYS be a criminal defense.

This omg. I was so appalled by the lackadaisical attitude in some peeps on this site about prostitution as if it was like any other normal career smh.
OH girls if you ever visit Korea pls avoid going to the clubs pls. Your safety always should come first. Be safe

:omg:

I mean, yeah. Translator’s summary of prostitution “hierarchy” in Korea, though some semblance of this is in many places:

“I think this is a good time to share some info in regards to prostitution in Korea.

So these are the major routes of prostitution in Korea

1. ⁠.5 > 10% > Room Salon (Host Bar - male equivalent to Room Salon)

⁠1. ⁠So the difference between these are the "quality" of the girls. In the .5 establishment it means the girls are basically as pretty or prettier than even celebrities. Many times they will even be well educated and speak multiple languages. Either you are so gorgeous that it's unbelievable or the girls are celebrity worthy and educated. This is high end. You drink with the girls and have sex and you pay a ton of money. 10% and room salon are just that but the "quality" of girls is just going to go downhill. Room salons will still have pretty girls but the "quality" will vary and the sex isn't always negotiated at the establishment. Sometimes it is and other times you negotiate with the girl direct. To work at these establishments you either get introduced or for Room Salon's you just go in for an interview. Every week there are new girls/guys that ask to work at the establishment.

2. ⁠Karaoke / Noraebang
⁠1. ⁠This is exactly what it sounds like. It's just karaoke, except you can ask for them to call up girls. You pick and "have fun" with the girls. Sex is negotiated separately and not through the establishment.

3. ⁠Officetel Girls
⁠1. ⁠This is mentioned in the quote above. Officetels are just buildings with offices and studios/1 rooms. It's a broad term like "apartment". They aren't all related to the sex industry. There is one very specific officetel in Gangnam that is famous for this. The "quality" of the girls differ very widely and lot of them have "pimps".

4. ⁠Massage Room
⁠1. ⁠This is exactly what you think of it as. It's basically a massage parlor. Sex does happen.


You can ask any adult in Korea and they will know what all these different types of establishments are. If you walk around Gangnam at night there are business card sized fliers littering the streets advertising massage parlors and officetels and room salons. This is not a surprise in Korea. The surprise is that celebrities got caught.”
