This is turning into juicy girl week here at the ROK Drop as yet another story involving juicy girls has popped up. Via the Marmot come news that a juicy girl is suing a US soldier for child support:
The 37-year-old Filipina, who came to Korea on an E6 entertainment visa and is now residing in Korea illegally, works in a local bread factory to support her 1-year-old child. Her lawsuit, launched in May, is demanding the soldier be named the father and pay 500,000 won a month in child support.
Explaining her case, she said she wants to make US soldiers realize that they mustn’t have sex with women and leave them without fulfilling their duties. She wants to do this, she said, because many US soldiers are doing just that.
The woman and GI met in September 2005. The Hani reports that she entered Korea as a performer and got work as a “juicy girl” employed at a club servicing US soldiers. She made US$600 a month, but the club was not the place where her “Korean Dream” could come true.
When she got to the club, she learned that it was a place of prostitution for GIs. She would even have to service Koreans looking for “2-cha” (i.e., sex). After about a month, she left the club, and drifted from job to job, including a stint at a food product factory, before meeting the GI. The two would live together, and she would have his son.
The soldier would get a US passport for his son, but in the meantime, he left the mother for another Filipina. Before he left, he gave her US$552 in child support. After she launched her lawsuit, the soldier left for the United States without saying a word on August 15. USFK has so far ignored her request for the father’s current address.
Full story over at the Marmot’s Hole but something about this story I found strange. She claims that she and the soldier in question were living together. They could not be living together unless the soldier married the juicy girl. A 2ID soldier cannot live off post without being married. Being married doesn’t mean you can automatically live off post either because you have to fill out the appropriate force protection paperwork to get your commander’s approval to live off post.
So if he was living off post without being married that raises a whole bunch of other issues such as curfew violations and disobeying direct orders not to mention how what measures his unit uses to monitor soldiers. Additionally if the child is his and the passport proves it he will have to provide child support. If this is all true, the soldier can be brought up on a variety of UCMJ violations which I hope someone is working on right now.
I think there is more to this story and we are only getting one side of it, but soldiers should not abandon their children in Korea and should be held legally responsible when doing so. The other thing to keep in mind that this isn’t just a strictly GI problem which is evident to anyone who visits an orphanage in Korea where there are plenty of mixed race children between Filipinas and other nationalities including Koreans as well.
