As the intense police crackdown on Seoul’s infamous Changan-dong brothel district continued over three months, a “laidoff” prostitute hanged herself.
The woman, 36, was found by a friend who couldn’t reach her by phone for more than10 days. The friend visited her apartment and called poiice after smelling a strange rotten odor.
The brothel where she worked for several years was shuttered by the police. Since then, she has had economic difficulty, according to her friends, Yonhap reported Saturday.
The Chosun Ilbo reports that actually the woman quit the Changan-dong brothel in June and had been working elsewhere.
Because the Korea Times, one of the only and thus one of the top English-language newspapers in the country, continues to allow comments to the bottom of articles, we're treated to this commentary:
