Cops looking at Japanese websites on Korean prostitution

In an exclusive, Ye Olde Chosun is reporting that Seoul’s Finest have found 16 websites promoting Korean prostitution to Japanese. The operators of five have been caught and are being investigation; police are looking for the operators of the rest.

The sites basically provide a wealth of information on the various forms of prostitution in Korea. Users trade info and post their experiences. One lovely fellow even wrote that one working girl got very angry when he asked her in Korean, “How does it feel to have sold herself to Japanese, who invaded her homeland?” Classy.

Some prof at Konkuk University told the Chosun that these sites could give Japanese reason to disrespect Korea. They needed to be shut down as they have people a distorted view of Korea, he said.

David Batstone, a San Francisco University professor and head of the non-profit group “Not For Sale,” said during a July visit to Korea that while women in developing countries often engage in prostitution to make money, Korea was an odd case since prostitution was prevalent despite Korea’s high per capita income.

    I call Bullsh!t with a capitol B.

    Very few Japanese men would ever take the time to learn how to say something like that in Korean.

    Oh wait . . . maybe the guy actually did spend weeks and months practicing Korean so he could say that well enough to be understood. And the same guy also said Dokdo is Takeshima, the comfort women enjoyed every minute of their work with the Japanese military, and Korea deserved to be occupied by Japan from 1909 to 1945. All in perfect Korean. Right?

    Those websites sound fifteen 1/2 times more demeaning to Korean women than EnglishSpectrum. Can we have all Japanese male tourists submit drug, criminal record, and HIV/AIDS tests now please?

    “Some prof at Konkuk University told the Chosun that these sites could give Japanese reason to disrespect Korea.”

    Korean professors, getting smarter by the decade.

    Per “ZenKimchi” apparently many pron sites are being blocked as of late in Korea.
    The large, local spa around where I live in Bongcheon Dong is still going strong though.

    whats new? Don’t they all disrespect Korea and have a distorted view of Korea. Don’t need porn sites to view Korea like that.

    Would love to see the Chosun have a reporter count the number of sex-related businesses within a ten block radius of the police station. Now that is a story.

    Brother Zen, I haven’t (ahem) seen those sites, being the puritanical soul that I am, but you can add xhamster, xvideo, and just about every other one. Gone.

    But there is always the ten block radius of the hokey for a little action.

    I’ve never really thought about it, but I suppose the question “Who’s your daddy? Who’s your daddy?!…” could take on some uncomfortable colonial overtones in that context.

    Per #11, A ChosunIlbo reporter would not have the stomach to try and his editors even less fortitude. A ChosunIlbo reporter or editor’s salary is not enough to afford a sense of morality or a glance in the mirror, IMHO.

    (I am waiting to be proven wrong though since humans are capable of anything.)
