The South Korean Love Industry

24631 ratings | 3550712 views
With one of the lowest birth rates in the world, South Korea is in danger of disappearing by the end of the millennium. If the situation stays as it is, South Koreans are predicted to become extinct by 2750. Because of the rapidly aging population, elderly prostitutes known as "Bacchus ladies" have cornered a number of public parks as their working areas. Meanwhile, South Korean kids are living with their families well into their 20s—as a result, an entire economy of sex motels has sprung up to give kids a place to fool around outside the watchful eyes of their parents. We sent Matt Shea to investigate this generational crisis, which led him to Seoul's red-light district, a pre-wedding photo shoot on the set of a Korean soap opera, and an erotic sculpture park on South Korea's "honeymoon island."

Those dark circles are genetic. I'm sure his parents are thrilled over his low IQ. He seems very happy holding a crankshaft, He should just come out of the closet. Preference for Shakespeare over The Bible causes the ruin of any country. I had no idea S. Korea was so fake. Their sex crimes will cost them just like it does every country.

So Korea doesn't value the elderly and wisdom, if they just push them into a corner and forget about them. These women hook as they have no pension. So sad. :(

if I was made to do those photos I would not be able to stop laughing to be able to have my photo taken. I had already messed up a drama practice once where I could not stop laughing as I was to play the bad boy boyfriend (despite being a girl myself) of this slightly rebellious girl trying to convince her to leave her family behind. And I was told to go up to her and stroke her cheek with my hand but not just that I was also smearing white face paint onto her face at the same time to symbolise her growing rebellious behaviour and the her peers have on her and I could not stop laughing. Like I would reach over to do this one scene and just crack up at how serious everyone was trying to be it was so cringe I could not stop my laughter.

Why does Vice keep pushing welfare, as if the problem is just that the government was stealing enough money to give to old people, who were "pushed" into prostitution. 😒

I blame westernization for destroying eastern traditions of respecting your elders and honoring your family. Respect and Honor are two concepts westerners don't understand since they weren't bought up with it, instead Jimmy will always say "Fuck you MOM!!!" when he's asked to clean his room. Porn is produced at such a crazy rate and consumed by so many youths in the western world that it's corrupting their brain, respect for women is dropping and women don't want to deal with men since we live in a "equal society" so the value of 'man' has depreciated since apparently women can do everything we can now. Western culture has always been about "Divide and Conquer" well look at how this strategy is breaking apart Asian cultures where kids are now mouthing back at their parents and not respecting themselves and becoming prostitutes like all the white girls. Smh...

There should never be govt interference in family. Traditional family structures are sustainable and take care of themselves That is the solution. Where are the vaginas in that park? Fertility needs both, not just penises.

Seems like China is the only East Asian country without a population problem, at least not in that way. Yes, China has more men than women, but pretty much all of them are fucking, unlike the rest of East Asia.
