Four out of ten young girls who have run away from their homes were investigated to have experienced sexual encounters.


The data was sourced from research material that was announced during a forum on teenage runaways which was held on September 20 at Daejeon Metropolitan Council. The forum served as a place to announce the facts on teenage runaways and suggest alternative measures that will decrease the percentage of youngsters that run away from home. 


The research that was gathered and organized for this forum revealed that 38% of young girls in their teens who ran away from home have had some type of sexual encounters. These girls typically had these sexual encounters anywhere between the ages of 14 to 16. 32.6% of participants in this study answered that "there was more temptation to join the prostitution business" after they left home, 17.4% answered, "there isn't adequate work available" and 10.9% answered, "the chances of sexual assault increases."

What may be more surprising is that the people who suggested that these girls enter the prostitution business were usually their close acquaintances. The research revealed that it was 31.4% of companions (older and younger) who suggested prostitution, 31.4% of friends who suggested the same, and 17.1% of the participants answered that they decided on their own to make money by selling their bodies. 


When asked about the reasons for resorting to prostitution, 21.1% answered that it was to "make money," 15.5% answered "because I was hungry," and 12.7% answered, "because my friends and companions requested."

    1. Could you please properly cite the source of the data that was presented at that forum? Who conducted the research, what was the sample size, what the methodology etc.? At the very least, one would expect a link to the original source.2.

    This is like the norm around the world for runaway girls. AKP, why do you write articles that make it seem like Korea is the problem land of the world?

    Some countries have it even harder. Like girls aren't even runaway's in some countries, they go voluntarily into the prostitution business so they can provide money for their families.

    what makes me laugh the most is low IQ's here always acting like being a slut is something to look up to lol.  lol @ the idea of slut shaming, like its so awful to say anything to a slut about her being a slut.  AKP has some of THE dumbest people in the world who act like its so wrong to call out a girl for acting/being a slut.  most girls hate other girls that are sluts, and most guys have zero respect for girls that are sluts, but for some low IQ reason we're all supposed to tippy toes around the ho's and complement them for being ho's.  i swear i dont see that crap n real life just on AKP with the lowest of low IQ's in this world TBH.

    Where exactly have you seen people COMPLIMENT someone for being a hoe? It's more of a passive thing, like if you're a hoe then you're a hoe. It's comparable to if you're homosexual then you're homosexual, or if you're transgender then you're transgender. If someones a slut then say it, speak the truth. But what exactly is wrong with being a slut? Why should we degrade someone for having a lot of sex or selling their body for money? Why are they any lower than you or me? Don't slut shame means just let bygones be bygones, not praise hoes. And why have you, in your original comment, made the word "slut" only applicable to females? Males can be and--more so than women actually-- are sluts as well. Also, I see people slut shame and, thankfully, people call out others for slut-shaming all the time. It's real.

    They could have just paid me whatever money they wasted on this research and I could have told them the exact same thing.
