Are Prostitutes Linked To Super Bowl Sex & Drug Ring Really Victims?

What is it with Koreans and prostitution in the US?

The 18 operators of a high-end escort service allegedly banking on Super Bowl week to deliver “party packs” of cocaine and prostitutes have been charged with drug and sex trafficking, New York authorities said Thursday.

The nearly year-long undercover investigation discovered that in addition to selling the “party packs,” the ring allegedly laundered the illegal proceeds through front businesses that included a clothing wholesaler, a wig wholesaler, a limousine service and a beauty supply wholesaler, New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman said in a statement.

The ring targeted wealthy customers in New York for large events, authorities said. Last week, a text message was blasted to frequent customers noting that “new sexy & beautiful girls R in town waiting for u.” The enterprise also ran numerous advertisements on the Internet and on public access television.

Last year alone, the ring made $3 million dollars in credit card sales, authorities said.

Schneiderman said the ring involved thousands of clients and hundreds of prostitutes, primarily women from Korea brought by ring members to the United States.  [CNN via a reader tip]

If you read the rest at the link, they are claiming the women involved in the prostitution ring are victims claiming they were “seized” from Korea and forced to come to the US.  I would love to see evidence that these women were kidnapped from Korea and forced to come to the US.  According to the NY Daily News most of the prostitutes are older women:

Now some of the women in police custody are claiming they were forced into prostitution and are cooperating, sources said.

“They brought in new girls every three months,” Schnidermann said.

The prostitutes identified in court papers were no spring chickens. They ranged in age from 26 to 56 and four of them were in their 40s.  [NY Daily News]

If you are going to kidnap and bring someone to the US why would you kidnap 아줌마 and 할머니?  I would not be surprised if these women are long time sex workers in Korea that came over to the US as they got older to make more money.  What is likely going on is that the police told these women to cooperate against the ring leaders and they would not be prosecuted, thus the claims they were victims.  Also I am willing to bet that the authorities could have arrested this group long ago, but waited for this week just to make national headlines with the Super Bowl coming town.  Anyone disagree?

    Future comfort women, complaining about getting trafficked away to the big bad US as sex slaves. Right, what a hot steamy load. They were ajumma hookers. Who wants an ajumma hooker? “Ain’t nobody got time for that”.

    Please….Koreans…keep your unique ajumma porn culture to your country. Please understand MY culture. We don’t want your hookers. Jeez….for the next 50 years they will be trying to get NYC to pay them compensation for…oh this is just bull$hit.

    Every single woman on that board except for one is a Korean prostitute. That is a shame that Korea is such a poor country that it needs to export their prostitutes. There are far too many prostitutes in Korea, some have to go to other countries. Please understand our unique prostitution culture. 5000 years of prostitution culture.

    “We perfectly understand your American culture….”

    You know very little about Korean culture according to what you write.

    You, individually, know nothing of the cultures in America, again, according to what you write. You think you do, but you’ve proven time and again that you are a joke.

    Ever been to New England in the fall? There are no pretty colors at that time of year, that can only be found in Korea.

    Koreans seem to love dishing it out, but when the tables turn, it’s deflection and denial time. Koreans can do it, but no one else is allowed. Although there are always individual exceptions.

    Yes, of course there are prostitutes in whatever city the Big Game is held. But no “big uptick” in the incidents.

    Same as in Korea. If the U.S. Army were to leave tomorrow, the anma places would continue to do their usual business.

    Article says they got their clients drunk/high and then stole thousands of dollars from their credit cards…just like it’s done their motherland.

    They probably ripped off the wrong person….politician, higher-up police, some connected businessman etc….which could explain why so much ruckus is being made over this bunch of ajummas. There’s prostitution rings in LA K-town that make triple what these guys made.

  • tbonetylr

    $3 million of credit cards were tracked in 1 year but in America most Jons use cash so there was much more than 3 million involved. When drugs were bought in the “party pack,” they were referred to as ‘Sujabi’(Rice Cake stew with Kimchi and Spam).

    Victims? That’s a good one. It says something about the messed-up mentality of these women that they’d rather whore themselves out to “smelly” and “hairy” barbarian Americans than marry a nice Korean farmer and enjoy a wholesome, natural life in the Korean countryside. Because of selfish, money-grubbing women like this, who have removed themselves from the South Korean dating pool and marriage market, Korean farmers need to import brides from poorer Southeast Asian nations, which is itself a disgusting form of human-trafficking.

    These women really have no shame. The last thing they are is “victims,” and they certainly do not deserve green cards, which boggles this here American’s mind to no end.

    “In some cases, authorities said, the greedy ring took advantage of wasted customers by charging them upward of $10,000 for a single booking”

    I agree there was a lot more than $3million involved….my point is that one of the wasted customers they ripped off could have been a connected person wanting to get his own back.

    How many stories have you heard from itaewon where some idiot walks into a juicy bar, gets drunk and wakes up the next morning to see his card has been maxed out by the whores there….same as the above

  • King Baeksu
    12:53 am on February 2nd, 2014 25

    BTW, all of the 16 women in the above graphic would appear to have Korean names with the possible exception of “Hai Ming Quan,” which seems to be Chinese. However, she could herself very well be Korean-Chinese, or even a North Korean defector. It certainly seems odd to have a lone Han Chinese woman mixed up with what is overwhelmingly a Korean prostitution ring. How did they communicate with each other, for example? Certainly it is far easier for holders of South Korean passports to enter the United States than it is for Chinese citizens these days.

    The best Korean hookers are in Korea. They earn as much as bankers and lawyers, don’t have to worry about authorities and immigration, and they sure as hell don’t have to worry about clients with giant dongs that could do some damage.

    Plus the fact that they can bag some moron willing to shell out for a 20-pyeongnofficetel and a monthly stipend for 3 minutes of sex every week…if he can make it back from the company hwesik while his wife and kids sleep in the other side of the city.

    There’s just no reason for these girls to seek employment elsewhere other than their home country…..

    The female head of the “santuary” said only when law enforcement stops the demand for commercial sex is when the industry will truly end.

    Good luck with that. She must feel secure in her job as the approach is to be kind to prostitutes(the ones who drug their customers and steal their money) but stop the Johns.

    Illegal Use of the Hands and Mouth
    Too many Sores on the Field
    Excessive Use of the Teeth
    Illegal Substitution of a Ladyboy
    False Start on the P3n1s

    I agree that these women were not trafficked but more than likely Sex Workers with a History. Typically woman in their late twenties, 30′s, etc.. are not the women targeted for sex trafficking. I also agree that the authorities might be trying to make a case for such so they can assign more serious charges and obtain longer sentences to the organizers behind the prostitution ring.

  • Ajeoshi Judge

    Man…them whores were middle-aged IN the middle ages :mrgreen:

    There are 3 types of hookers in Itaewon these days:

    *The ones that hate Korean men

    *The ones that can no longer make it in the room salons/noraebangs/anmas/officetels and RLDs

    *The ones that don’t realize they can earn way more in the aforementioned places, provided they still have the looks to compete…although they wouldn’t have to work as hard per customer, they would get a lot more customers.

    All it takes is a conversation here and there. A few bar owners, a few hookers, a few long-long-term expats, a few Korean folk that are well versed in the arts. A few articles here and there.

    It doesn’t take much to learn about the dynamics of the Korean sex industry. It is one of the biggest in the world.

    Besides…take a walk up/down the hill and make a mental note of what the girls look like. Then take a stroll along Yeongdeungpo RLD and compare the hill’s hookers to what you see….it doesn’t take a genius to realize the vast difference in, erm, “quality”.

    If you speak to 10 women today in Seoul…chances are at least 1 (or 2) of them is shining poles for that green/yellow paper.

    I truly hope that one day on Dokdo island, the daughters of former comfort women and the sons of former Japanese Imperial soldiers will be able to sit down together and cut a deal on a half priced short time.

    I look forward to the day when whores are not judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character. I hope our country will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all whores are created equal.”

    What do you expect from a country where it is common to have a brothel and a church in the same building.

    Or a brothel just across from a school.

    Or a brothel in the same building as a kindergarten/hagwon.

    Hell, the whole country is just one giant brothel :razz:
