A married couple in their 30s was arrested after making over 100 million won in the past year by running a chat app designed as a front for prostitution.
The couple hired 10 prostitutes to connect with men through the chat app to have sex in hotels in Haeundae, Seomyeon and Dongnae.
The couple would take 40,000 to 70,000 won, while the women would make 150,000 to 200,000. They found the women to work for them through internet job ad sites.
They were finally caught when the 34-year-old wife was apprehended by an undercover police officer in Sasang-gu pretending to be a customer.
They seized seven log books and a cell phone with the names of over 1,600 men, who the police are now going to investigate.
