Back in December, it was revealed that prosecutors were investigating a celebrity prostitution ring, which led to wide speculation and rumors about which celebrities were involved. Many names were cleared when the prosecution revealed that with the exception of one person, whom they could not confirm for the public at the time, the others involved were not top name celebrities but rather celebrity hopefuls or those who appeared once on a show on a cable program. 


It turned out that one name that the prosecution withheld previously was Sung Hyun Ah, who was the second runner up of Miss Korea back in 1994 and has since been active as an actress. She was indicted back in December by the prosecution, and with her requesting a formal trial to fight her charges, the first trial was held on the 19th. It appears witnesses will be questioned in order to uncover the truth regarding actress Sung Hyun Ah's supposed connection to the prosecution ring at a following trial to be held in the following month.


According to legal circles on February 19, Judge Choi Jae Won of the Suwon District Court's Ansan Branch brought up two key figures, A and B, as witnesses in Sung Hyun Ah's first trial.  The court has decided that these two people were deeply implicated in this situation and would therefore be key witnesses. 


Sung Hyun Ah is accused of allegedly receiving money from a business man with whom she had sexual relations.  According to the prosecutors, she had met up with the man three times for sexual intercourse from February to March of 2010 for a total of 50 million KRW (~ 47,000 USD).

What, prostitution is illegal in South Korea? In my country it is not illegal to be a prostitute, but illegal to touch a prostitute.

I live in Holland, and it so weird for me to see that Prostitution is illegal in other countries i'm always thinking that its the woman's choice, they are the boss over their own bodies, so why is it illegal.. Is it just me or?...

Im just suprised that she gets in trouble for messing with men but men do not get in trouble for messing with women. There has been men in korean that harrasses women but people dont care.

Ik ben het met je eens als dat het geval is, maar vaak (ook in Nederland) worden ze gedwongen en kwamen ze naar Nederland voor een heel andere reden en werden ze een mooi leven beloofd. Dus ja als Sung Hyun Ah er zelf voor koos dan zie ik niet wat het probleem is en zoals hierboven gezegd word moet die kerel ook aangepakt worden als ze het toch illegaal willen maken.

Why would a celebrity sell herself? And a TOP celebrity too at it? She must make REALLY little to do that. I mean COME ON! Which TOP celebrity doesn't have USD50k? Like seriously? I just don't get it... Even idols are making MILLIONS and MILLIONS and MILLIONS of dollars... no?

I would say "NO" on your income guessing for a LOT of SKorean actors/actresses. Also, in terms of the "time spent" versus the MONEY being paid, that may look good to Sung Hyun Ah. Finally, some earn a lot of money, and tend to SPEND a LOT of MONEY. So, they are always looking for a 'quick way' to GET MORE MONEY to spend it. But, I do NOT know if ANY of this that I just said it applies to Sung Hyun Ah.

@krevice Krevice you are really sick! they need you to confine you in a psychiatric hospital for dangerous patient, how you can say something about a pride of nation, how even can you dare to compare Kim Yuna with sluts like Hara and bullying sluts girls like T-ara who only knows to swing their asses to excite some virgin boys like you, shame on you, shame, go to bathroom and wash two time your dirty mouth, really you need help, nobody's there to help you, if you were and you talked like this about Yuna believe you will be in trouble!

If she is just prostituting herself.. how could this possibly cause an impact on the "witnesses"? Ain't nobody else's business but her and the man's if they make a transaction over sex. Unless the wife is a witness, I don't see how these people deserve the chance to prosecute her. Who are they?!

And I get how some people use this as a support for the fact that Korea is a sexist country, but I'm still kinda satisfied that there still some countries in the world trying to uphold morals and denouncing such acts.

The man should be shamed too, why is it always the girl ugh? But still prostitution is quite immoral and I'm kinda disgusted by people (both men and women ) who engage in such stuff.  Try and lead a respectful life please. (gonna get a ton of flak for this)

How about prosecutors go focus on cases relating to non consensual sex and forced prostitution? -__-

· Posted February 20, 2014 @ 8:35 am
Probably those who are in that line of 'work' in SKorea know to PAY ($$$$$) the proper people so that they are NOT ANNOYED by Police. And also, 'publicly pounding' (newspapers) this CELEBRITY will score POLITICAL POINTS with the SKorean public. Stories are written that this SKorean Prosecutor will "clean things up" and "restore morals" to SKorea. Meanwhile, 'business as usual' at the 'Happy Endings' Massage Parlor. (LOL)

my thoughts exactly?! and if they want to prosecute someone it should be the root of the problem which is the matchmaker aka pimp,

@blackjack2121 it's because she is a 'top actress' they want the publicity so it looks like they are doing something right, South Korea isn't any different from other countries. In my opinion.

 It's not like I'm pro prostitution,  but who are people to control who people sleeps with.  Makes no logical sense, if two consenting adult agree to engage in such action that does no harm to others is illegal, but yet like MMA - two people beating the shit out of each other perfectly legal.  


Kinda sad, how the female always get the short end of the stick when it comes to prostitution. It takes two to tango, it's sad to see how some part of the world still see female as second to male.

All parts of the world still see women as inferior to men. Sad, but true. Even in America, it's proven that in some jobs, for every dollar a man makes, a women in the same job makes 75 cents. May not seem like much, but it adds up to hundreds of dollar, if not thousands.

I agree with the sentiment of your comment completely. In a fair and blalanced world, people should be allowed to engage in SAFE sexual behaviors that don't infringe on others' rights (the reason why MMA is legal is because there are very stringent rules that do what is possible to protect fighters' safety). That being said... this isn't a fair and balanced world. Quite often, women's sexuality is exploited for profit. Frighteningly young children are roped into horrific practices due to economic disparity. Moreover, too often the idea of "consent" gets blurred in these circumstances. So while I do think people should be allowed to choose what they do with their body, I also know the choice needs to be REAL and that prostitution laws such as this are basically the lesser of the two evils at this point.

I'm probably going to surprise you, by saying that this 'Sung Hyun Ah' situation is a GOOD one for you to express (vent?) your views on the 'moral decay' of SKorea. HOWEVER, I do NOT agree (with you, as previously stated) that these situations mean that say GOO HARA (KARA) gets a LOT of CF work (TV ads) because she is a PROSTITUTE for 'PRODUCERS' (those who decide who gets the CF work). IF you are looking to make some type of 'connection' that say GOO HARA is just like Sung Hyun Ah (typical for you), I'd suggest leaving that alone. You can do it, but I'd suggest that (hopefully) NOT MANY will 'buy into' that 'logic.' However, there is actual testimony (statements, evidence) about what Sung Hyun Ah has done it. So, I've got NO PROBLEM if you want to make comments (probably negative) about her. At least you'll have some ACTUAL EVIDENCE to 'work with it.' So, I say to you, kang: HIT US WITH YOUR BEST SHOTS! ... FIRE AWAY! (LOL)

@krevice ok I will try! first of all why you are so sensible when it comes to Hara, do you have a crash for Hara, there are so many girls prettier than Hara, and again your hara is used to wast money not that Kara is not active and I presume will soon be disbanded how she is going to earn money? and since her moral and value is not so high I thing she is not going to think twice before opening her legs for an old director, like other actresses and idoles are doing and did before her!
