A Thai massage parlor that was operating as a prostitution front in Busan has led to the arrest of a 35-year-old Korean broker and the deportation of nine Thai women.

The massage parlor, located in Hadan, Saha-gu, was open 24-hours a day and took clients by SNS messages, where they were given instructions on how to enter the building. The building in which the services took place had CCTV cameras throughout the building and secret doorways that were hard to detect.

Two other locations — one in Gimhae and one in Geoje — were also suspected of being associated with the owner. All in all, 20 Thai women were said to be working at the establishments. Nine women have been deported so far for violating the Immigration Control Act.

The Thai women were brought to Korea by recruiters and were paid 1.2 million won and given free airfare to Korea.

The owner was said to have made 120 million won since he began the business in December, 2015 before his arrest.
