    An investigation squad from the Busan Metropolitan Police Agency has arrested six offenders, including a 24-year old brothel owner with the family name of Kim, for brokering prostitution. The police also sent investigation records to the prosecutors’ office on six additional members of the prostitution ring, including those in charge of contacts and sex buyers ID checks, as well as on 62 sex buyers. Kim and his accomplices rented approximately 30 studio apartments in Busan from July 2014 to February 2017 and advertised prostitution through online sites that promote entertainment businesses. They are suspected of making about 200 million won in net profits from brokering prostitution. About 10,000 sex buyers, mostly office workers, college students, and day laborers, were registered as members with their business.

     

    They also had ‘action guidelines’ in place in order to respond to police raids and a clear division of roles among themselves. ‘The operations manager’ took charge of prostitution sites and financial management; ‘the business manager’ received calls and attracted sex buyers; and ‘the ID manager’ checked the identification of sex buyers and, if confirmed, sent them to prostitution sites. They were so scrupulous as they checked whether or not their potential clients(sex buyers) were brothel users, as well as their company name, income history, ID validity, phone number, and call history in order to ensure they were not undercover police officers.

     

    “They committed themselves to the business in the belief that just one month’s income would be greater than any fine they had to pay,” said the police. “We will do our best to uphold law and order by strongly punishing those covertly operating indecent businesses.”
