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.
