Celebrities Cleared in High-Class Prostitution Scandal

2013/12/21 | Permalink | Source

Prosecutors have cleared several celebrities of involvement in a high-class prostitution ring they are investigating.

The announcement on Thursday scotched rumors circulating in the industry that comedienne Jo Hye-ryun, actresses Lee Da-hae and Yoon Eun-hye, singer Shinji and several other entertainers sold sexual favors to rich clients.

Instead, prosecutors said only one famous person is being investigated for allegedly having sex three times with a private businessman for a fee of W50 million (US$1=W1,060).

The rest are apparently unknown trainees in entertainment factories or TV bit-part players.

Ahn Byung-ik at the Ansan branch of the Suwon District Prosecutors' Office told reporters that none of the entertainers who had been accused in online messages of being part of the ring are targets of the investigation.

Prosecutors have indicted 12 trainees, businessmen and pimps.

According to prosecutors, the women were paid between W3 million and W20 million per assignment, which was confirmed during the investigation and by tracking their bank transaction records.

In some cases the women were sent by a pimp to China to have sex with wealthy clients there.

Prosecutors expressed regret that they were unable to scotch the rumors earlier as they still had very little hard evidence.
