Koreans Arrested for Using Spa as a Front for Prostitution in Alabama

Via a reader tip comes news that a few Koreans were arrested in Alabama for get this, using a spa for a front for prostitution:

BIRMINGHAM, Alabama — Five people face charges for drugs and prostitution after Birmingham detectives searched a spa on Parkway East.

Birmingham Police Department vice detectives searched the Bali Spa at 9533 Parkway East around 11:30 a.m. Friday, according to a news release by Birmingham Police Department spokesman Sgt. Johnny Williams Jr.

Soon Ae Corado, 46, of Los Angeles, is charged with opening a house of prostitution and doing business without a license. Josh Palmer, 40, of Columbiana; Soon Lim, 37, of Korea and Mi Young Knichel, 40, of Lakewood, Wash., each face a charges of loitering for prostitution. Buy Park, 37, of Flushing, N.Y., is charged with loitering for drugs.

Williams said Corado, Knichel and Park are all originally from Korea. [All Alabama]

I am shocked that some one would use a spa for such activities.

    I’m shocked that there are such offenses as ‘loitering for prostitution’ and ‘loitering for drugs.’ Anybody want to buy a used constitution?

    Calling it the “Happy Ending Spa” was probably a dead giveaway. They should have been more subtle like say “the steam and cream”

    Sometimes court cases like these are drawn out by the defense which might make Lee Bok-sil happy, he’s the vice minister of the Gender Ministry in S. Korea and is proposing two new bills for the National Assembly to pass.

    I know the Korean gov’t likes to get ahead of themselves in claiming…“Gov’t gets tougher on sex tourism” but frankly I don’t think the bills will ever pass in the near future.

    One of the bills is to take passports away from Koreans who get caught abroad and the other is to give only one warning(instead of two) to domestic karaoke bars and hostess bars as well as hotels when they are caught offering prostitution.

    The ministry is going to also try and root out prostitution in S.E. Asia and will hold an international open forum on the subject.
    “According to a child prostitution report filed by the End Child Prostitution, Child Pornography and Trafficking of Children for Sexual Purpose (ECPAT), Koreans are considered one of the key groups involved in children prostitution in Southeast Asia, drawing strong criticism of Korea’s lukewarm attitude toward preventing sex tourism.

    Since 2007, Korea has been conducting research in Southeast Asian regions on child prostitution and trafficking and also has held a series of international forums to root out such crimes, but the number of Korean sex tourists has not gone down.

    According to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, Koreans generate about $7 billion in revenue every year overseas for prostitution and human trafficking, and about 79 percent of the trafficking is for sexual purposes, with some 13 percent of the prostitution victims being underage.”

    What is up with Koreans and prostitution..they seem to addicted to it…everywhere they go, they set up Korean brothels :lol:

    And I thought there is shortage of Korean prostitutes which is why they import from the Phillipines? :lol: But there seem to be lots of Korean prostitutes outside Korea. Maybe, they have Korean prostitutes too in the Phillipines?

    Look at all their last names, and their age. They have Anglo last names, suggesting they are Korean juicy girl whore wives of former USFK soldiers who were stationed in Korea in the 1990′s and 1980′s. This only confirms that Korean women who used to marry GI’s were nothing but whores.

    Seems it won’t be long before there are more Koreans residing outside Korea than in country. Right, Tom?
