    The Cybercrime Squad of the Gyeonggi Nambu Provincial Police Agency announced the arrest two brothers (38 and 41 years old) for operating an illegal pornography site with the intention of brokering prostitution and charging advertising fees to brothels. Starting in April 2014 they were posting indecent videos as a means to attract members on their website using a server located in the Philippines. They then brokered prostitution by posting advertisements for brothels. They charged 300,000-400,000 won per month in advertising fees from some 1,300 brothels across the country, including massage parlors, generating about 7.8 billion won in profits.

     

    Their website collected about 250,000 members and recorded some 80,000 visitors per day. Website members wrote about their experiences at specific brothels, posted comments on other members’ posts, and/or posted indecent materials on the site. The brothers classified their members into 31 rankings, including Captain, Minister, and Prime Minister based on their level of activity, and awarded prominent members with brothel discount coupons equivalent to 50,000 won.  

     

    By seeking a confiscation and restraining order on their bank accounts and apartment deposit (240 million won), the police are continuing to track down their hidden criminal profits.
