Many of the young prostitutes in Miari Texas are runaways who feel they have nothing more to lose.

The first prostitution house (brothel) was established in the 1920’s when Korean women were taken as sex slaves by the Japanese military during the Japanese occupation of Korea (1910 – 1945). After the Korean war ended in 1953, the large American military presence led to the building of “camp town prostitution” for the U.S. soldiers. It can be almost safe to say that prostitution was first introduced to Korea because of foreign invasion.

From 2001 to 2003, over twenty different women’s rights organizations did studies about the condition of women in prostitution. The research found that the women underwent physical threats, violence, rape, abduction, intimidation and extortion in their work. Most of the money they earned was taken away by the brothel owners and pimps because of debt bondage...
