The South Korean Love Industry

23932 ratings | 3483262 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."

Don't you think in any given hotel there have been hundreds of couples having sex on the same beds you'll be sleeping on?

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.

So I've been watching documentaries about sex industries around the world and I realized that holy crap, sex sells. Literally, it is EVERYWHERE. We don't even realize how much we see it.

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.

Prostitution is a typical traditinal Korean female job. One of the main job of S Korean jobless female(from young to old) is a prostitution. It called 妓生(Kisaeng) at that time(Joseon periods). They were true sex slaves(奴婢 they didn't have even own name). There are many S Korean prostitutes in many country even now. S Korean don't have a sense of shame.

If I hadn’t watched this video I would’ve never known there’s basically a dick park on Jeju Island. It’s WAAAY too far fetched to think it exists when you see how conservative some of these people act. Key word: act.

This was interesting, but I was constantly distracted by the presenter's accent. Like, where the hell is this guy from, South Africa, the moon? I feel like he hails from one of those less-remembered states that people rarely talk about, and never visit--like Delaware.

You would never believe this was happening just by watching korean dramas. They totally fooled me, i thought everyone's getting married in Korea. Very few dramas i've seen were a bit more "realistic". it's propaganda.
