Baekjeong (백정) basically 1400 years of slavery after baekje lost against tang. Kisaeng기생 were the entertainer sex slave and kids inherit the position. Joseon sent castrated eunuch and young virgin girls as tributary gift to qing/china.  Lots Koreans have Hwabyeong/화병/火病/fire disease(hot temper mental disorder.)

Prostitutes in South Korea for the U.S. military
Partly from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency enforced registration of comfort women for UN forces under the Society Bureau’s operation of “Management industry of venereal comfort women for UN forces”. This registration was to permit domestic partnerships between foreigners and comfort women, without actually being legally-recognized marriages.-Dong-a Ilbo September 14, 1961.

North Korean nurses captured by South Korean and US soldiers. Captured North Korean women were sometimes raped and forced to work as sex slaves.[16]

The term “Western princess” has been commonly used in the press, such as Dong-a Ilbo for decades.[7][17] On the other hand, it is also used as an insulting epithet.[18] The official name for Western princess (Yanggongju) was Wianbu (위안부, 慰安婦), i.e. “comfort woman”.[1][9][19] The term Wianbu had been used by South Korean media to refer to prostitutes for the U.S. military until the early 1990s,[20] and also used to refer to the so-called comfort women.[21] In South Korea, most women who used to live around U.S. Army camps were prostitutes.[18] In the Allied-occupied Korea, between the 1950s and 1980s, the total number of women amounted to over one million.[1][5][22] Some women chose to become prostitutes.[23] Other women were coerced into prostitution.[24][25] Prostitutes for U.S. soldiers were esteemed to be at the bottom of the social hierarchy by South Koreans,[26] they were also lowest status within the hierarchy of prostitution.[27]
U.S. Military and Syngman Rhee rule[edit]
In September 1945, U.S. forces occupied Korea, including comfort stations.[28] The women in comfort stations were also taken over.[5][28] In 1946, the United States Army Military Government outlawed prostitution in South Korea.[4][29] During the United States Army Military Government rule, Korean society treated prostitutes with humiliation that included stoning and cursing from children.[3] However, by 1953, the total number of prostitutes amounted to 350,000.[4][29] Between the 1950s and 1960s, 60 percent of South Korean prostitutes worked near U.S. military camps.[4][29] During the Korean War, it was the South Korean Army that controlled Wianbu units performing sexual services for U.N. and South Korean soldiers.[1][30] Throughout the Korean War, two separate types of comfort stations were operated.[31] One was U.N. Comfort Stations (UN위안소, UN慰安所) for U.N. soldiers, and the other was Special Comfort Stations (특수위안소, 特殊慰安所) for South Korean soldiers.[31] U.N. Comfort Stations were administered in collaboration with provincial governors, mayors and polices.[32] The majority of women working in U.N. Comfort Stations were married and supporting their families.[32] On the front lines, women were brought in by trucks without permission.[1] Between 1951 and 1954, the women units were referred to as Special Comfort Units (특수위안대, 特殊慰安隊).[30][33] Some South Korean corps referred to the women as Class V supply,[1] because the South Korean Army had only up to Class IV supplies.[34] War History on the Home Front (후방전사, 後方戰史) published by the South Korean Army in 1956, refers to the existence of the South Korean military’s comfort women units.[30][33] General Chae Myung-shin, the South Korean Vietnam Expeditionary Forces Commanding Officer, also commented on the comfort women units during the Korean War in his memoir Beyond the Deadline (死線을 넘고넘어, 사선을 넘고넘어) published in 1994.[34] Chae says, “The adopting of the military comfort women system strengthened the morale of officers and soldiers, and prevented sexually transmitted disease. There was a viewpoint that the army internalized unlicensed prostitutes who were spreading in society and protected their human rights.”[34] Chae also remarks, “I don’t want to expose the military to dishonor, but I record these as the undeniable facts.”[34]
Second Republic (1960–1961)[edit]
The Second Republic viewed prostitution as something of a necessity.[35] In 1960, lawmakers of the National Assembly urged the South Korean government to train a supply of prostitutes for Allied soldiers and prevent them from spending their dollars in Japan.[35] Lee Sung-woo, the deputy home minister (ko), gave a response to the national assembly that the government had made some improvements in the “Supply of Prostitutes” for American soldiers.[35]
Military government rule[edit]
Park Chung-hee (left) shakes hands with General Guy S. Meloy after the May 16 coup. Park helped to enforce the “Base Community Clean-Up Campaign”.[36][37]
Park Chung-hee, who ruled South Korea during the 1960s and 1970s, and the father of incumbent president Park Geun-hye, encouraged the sex trade in order to generate revenue, particularly from the U.S. military.[38] Park seized power in the May 16 coup, and immediately enforced two core laws.[39] The first was the Prostitution Prevention Law, which excluded “camp towns” from the governmental crackdown on prostitution; the second was the Tourism Promotion Law, which designated camp towns as Special Tourism Districts.[39]
During the 1960s, camp town prostitution and related businesses generated nearly 25 percent of the South Korean GNP.[40] In 1962, 20,000 comfort women were registered, and the charge to the American soldiers was two dollars for a short time and five dollars for a long time.[1] The prostitutes attended classes sponsored by their government in English and etiquette to help them sell more effectively.[41] They were praised as Dollar-earning Patriots or True Patriots by the South Korean government.[23][38][41] In the 1970s one junior high school teacher told his students that “The prostitutes who sell their bodies to the U.S. military are true patriots. Their dollars earned greatly contributes to our national economy. Don’t talk behind their back that they are Western princesses or U.N. Madams.”[10]
In 1971, the number of American soldiers was reduced by 18,000, due to the Nixon Doctrine.[42][43] On account of this, South Koreans were more afraid of the North Korean threat and its economic impact.[44] Even so, camp town prostitution had already become an important component of South Korean livelihood.[44] The advocacy group My Sister’s Place wrote in 1991 that the American soldiers contributed 1 billion dollars to the South Korean economy which was 1% of the South Korean GNP.[45]
Despite this, there were issues of venereal disease and racist conflict. U.S. military personnel advised the South Korean government that the camp towns were breeding grounds for sexually transmitted diseases, and places of racist discrimination.[46] The venereal disease ratio per 1,000 American soldiers rapidly increased, from 389 (in 1970), 553 (in 1971), and 692 (in 1972).[43] Camp town clubs were separated for blacks and whites, and women were classified in accordance with the soldiers’ race.[36] The residents near Camp Humphreys discriminated between African Americans and white Americans.[36] African American soldiers vented their anger against camp town residents.[36] On July 9, 1971, 50 African American soldiers provoked a riot against racist discrimination, and destroyed some clubs near Camp Humphreys.[36] In turn, residents hunted down African American soldiers with sickles.[36] American military police and South Korean police quelled the rioters.[36] In August 1971, the Secretary of Home Affairs Ministry, in cooperation with health authorities, gave orders to each police station to take precautions against sexually transmitted diseases, and instructing prostitutes about STDs.[42] On December 22, 1971, South Korean President Park Chunghee enforced the Base Community Clean-Up Campaign.[36] The government educated women not to discriminate racially, and banned clubs that posted segregationist signboards.[36] The American military police and South Korean officials regularly raided prostitutes who were thought to be spreading disease, and would detain those thought to be ill, locking them up under guard in so-called monkey houses which had barred windows,[41] and the women were forced to take medications that were reported to make them vomit.[41] Women were certified to be without disease wore tags.[23] In the 1970s, U.S. military officials and South Korean bureaucrats discussed the matter of preventing epidemics, and government efforts to register prostitutes and requiring them to carry medical certification.[35] The U.S. military issued and required the prostitutes who worked at clubs to carry Venereal Disease Cards, and also published a Venereal Disease guide to inform American soldiers patronizing bars.[47] There are reports that some women were killed by soldiers or committed suicide.[23] The South Korean government educated prostitutes who worked at the U.S. military camp in regard of preventing venereal disease. The South Korean bureaucrats educated that prostitution is an act of patriotism.[48] The bureacrats informed the prostitutes of their contribution to the development and security of South Korea when they serve the U.S. soldiers with a healthy and clean body along with cooperative attitudes. The former Chief Secretary of the Blue House who directed the Base Community Clean-up Campaign, educated the prostitutes to learn the spirit of prostitutes who served the U.S. military during 1945 in Japan.[49] The former presidential secretary for audit and inspection, Hong Jong-chul, attempted to make policies for the prostitutes in base communities such as building apartments for them.[48]
Post-military government rule[edit]
During the early 1990s, the prostitutes became a symbol of South Korean anti-American nationalism.[50] In 1992, there were about 18,000 registered and 9,000 unregistered South Korean women around U.S. military bases.[51] In 1992, Yun Geum-i, a prostitute in Dongducheon, was brutally killed by U.S. servicemen.[52][53] Yun was found dead with a bottle stuffed into her vagina and an umbrella into her anus.[54] In August 1993, the U.S. government compensated the victim’s family with about 72,000 dollars.[55] But the murder of a prostitute did not itself spark a national debate about the prerogatives of the U.S. forces, on the other hand the rape of a twelve-year-old Okinawan school girl in 1995 by U.S. Marines elicited much public outrage and brought wider attention to military-related violence against women.[53]
Since the mid-1990s, Russian, Uzbek, Kazakh, and Philippine women have worked as prostitutes in U.S. military camp towns in South Korea.[24][25][56] Reportedly many of them have been forced into prostitution.[24][25] Since the 2000s, the majority of prostitutes have been Philippine or Russian women, and South Koreans have become less numerous.[7][57] Since the mid-1990s, foreigners make up 80-85 percent of the women working at clubs near military bases.[58] Between the mid-1990s and the early 2000s nearly 5,000 women from Russia and the Philippines have been smuggled into South Korea and forced into sexual slavery.[25] On the other hand, South Korean prostitutes are still represented in large numbers. According to the Ministry of Gender Equality and Family, South Korean prostitutes numbered about 330,000 in 2002.[59] As the number was rising, the Ministry estimates that about 500,000 women work in the national sex industry.[38] The Korean Feminist Association estimates the actual number may exceed one million. According to the estimates up to one-fifth of women between the ages of 15 and 29 have worked in the sex industry.[38] South Korean government also admits sex trade accounts for as much as 4 percent of the annual Gross Domestic Product.[38] In August 1999, a Korean club owner in Tongduchon was accused of trafficking in women by bringing more than 1,000 Philippine and Russian women into South Korea for U.S. military bases, but a South Korean judge overturned the warrant.[60] In 2000, five foreign women locked in a brothel died in a fire in Gunsan.[5] In early 2002, 12 women died in a similar fire, also locked in a Gunsan pub.[5]
In 2002, Fox Television reported casing brothels where trafficked women were allegedly forced to prostitute themselves to American soldiers.[60] U.S. soldiers testified that the club or bar owners buy the women at auctions, therefore the women must earn large sums of money to recover their passports and freedom.[5] In May 2002, U.S. lawmakers asked U.S. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld for an investigation that “If U.S. soldiers are patrolling or frequenting these establishments, the military is in effect helping to line the pockets of human traffickers”.[60] In June 2002, the U.S. Department of Defense pledged to investigate the trafficking allegations.[60] In 2003, the Seoul District Court ruled that three night club owners near Camp Casey must compensate all Filipina women who had been forced into prostitution.[61] The club owners had taken their passports and had kept the women locked up.[62] One Philippine woman who was in captivity kept a diary about her confinement, beating, abortion and starvation.[25] Before the trial began, the International Organization for Migration studied the trafficking of foreign women and reported the result to its headquarters in Geneva.[25] The Philippine Embassy also joined the proceedings, making it the first embassy to take steps on behalf of its nationals.[61] In the same year, the South Korean government completely discontinued issuing visas to former Soviet Union women, so prostitution businesses moved to bring in more Filipinas instead.[24][58] Human traffickers also brought in former Soviet Union women through sham marriages.[58] In 2005, Filipina and Russian women accounted for 90 percent of the prostitutes in U.S. military camp towns.[39] In 2005, Hwang Sook-hyang, a club owner in Tongducheon was sentenced to a 10-month suspended sentence and 160 hours of community service on charges of illegal brothel-keeping.[63] The following civil trial sentenced him to compensate 5,000 dollars to a Philippine woman who was forced to have sex with U.S. soldiers between February 8 and March 3, 2004.[63] The Philippine woman was recruited by a South Korean company in the Philippines as a nightclub singer in 2004, then she and several Philippine women were locked inside Hwang’s club and forced to have sex with U.S. soldiers.[63] The former “juicy bar” employees testified that soldiers usually paid 150 dollars to bring women from the bar to a hotel room for sex, the women received 40 dollars.[64] Most juicy bars have a quota system linked to drink purchases.[64] Women who do not sell enough juice, are forced into prostitution by their managers.[64]
In 2004, the U.S. Defense Department proposed anti-prostitution. A U.S. serviceman at Camp Foster told a Stars and Stripes reporter that although prostitution was illegal in the United States, in South Korea, Thailand and Australia they were pretty common.[65] By 2009, the Philippine Embassy in South Korea had established a “Watch List” of bars where Philippine women were forced into prostitution and were considering sharing it with the U.S. military in hopes that U.S. commanders would put such establishments near bases off-limits to their troops.[66] As of 2009, some 3,000 to 4,000 women working as prostitutes came annually from Southeast Asian countries like the Philippines, accounting for 90 percent of the prostitutes.[56] Despite prostitution being illegal in South Korea, camp towns were still practically exempted from crackdowns.[56]
In 2010, the United States Department of State, reported the predicament of women who worked at bars near U.S. military bases as one of ongoing human trafficking concerns in South Korea.[67] The Philippine government stopped approving contracts that promoters used to bring Philippine women to South Korea to work near U.S. military bases.[68] In 2011, the Eighth Army founded Prevention of Sexual Assault Task Force, the task force assessed and reported the climate in South Korea regarding sexual assault among U.S. soldiers.[69] The report also described sexual assault which arose between a low-ranking female soldier who recently arrived on the Korean peninsula and an older male officer.[69] According to Brigadier General David Conboy, the task force was not being formed in response to a single incident, but as a broader effort to study the unit’s sexual assault prevention and response measures.[69] However, the report has yet to be approved.[69] In 2012, a United States Forces Korea public service announcement clarified “Right now, young women are being lured to Korea thinking they will become singers and dancers,” and “Instead, they will be sexually exploited in order to support their families.” The United States Forces Korea posted a video on YouTube, clarifying that “buying overpriced drinks in a juicy bar supports the human trafficking industry, a form of modern-day slavery.”[67] However, some U.S. commanders continue to allow American soldiers to patronize the bars as long as they have not been caught directly engaging in prostitution or human trafficking.[70] Most recently, in June 2013, General Jan-Marc Jouas placed all juicy bars outside Osan Air Base off-limits for Seventh Air Force personnel. This change in policy resulted in three weeks of large scale protests in the local area, however, General Jouas credits this change in policy as resulting in most Juicy bars in the area closing down.[71][72][73]
Women and offspring[edit]

The children born to American soldiers and South Korean prostitutes were often abandoned when soldiers returned to the U.S.[18] By the 1970s, tens of thousands of children had been born to South Korean women and American soldiers.[57] In South Korea, these children are often the target of racist vitriol and abuse, being called “western princess bastards” (Yanggongju-ssaekki), “darkies”, or “niggers” (Kkamdungi).[2] It was difficult for South Korean prostitutes around the U.S. military bases to escape from being stigmatized by their society, thus their only hope was to move to the United States and marry an American soldier.[5] Trafficked Philippine women also had the same dream. Some American soldiers paid off the women’s debt to their owners to free them in order to marry them.[5] However, most U.S. soldiers are unaware of the trafficking. Some soldiers have helped Philippine women escape from clubs.[60] In 2009, juicy bar owners near Camp Casey who had political muscle, demanded that U.S. military officials do something to prevent G.I.s from wooing away their bar girls with promises of marriage.[64] In June 2010, U.S. forces started a program to search for soldiers who had left and abandoned a wife or children.[7] Haunting the Korean Diaspora: Shame, Secrecy, and the Forgotten War, a research of prostitutes by Grace M. Cho who was the daughter of a G.I. and a South Korean woman, was awarded the best 2010 book on Asia and Asian America by the American Sociological Association.[74][75]
A former South Korean prostitute said to the New York Times that they have been the biggest sacrifice of the South Korea-United States alliance.[35] The women also see themselves as war victims.[40] They are seeking compensation and apologies.[41] Because of this tainted history, the primary stereotype that most South Koreans held of South Korean women who had copulated with white men or “crackers” (“Hindungi”) was mainly negative.[18] Besides, the first international marriages were mostly between U.S. soldiers and Korean women who worked in U.S. military bases or who were camp prostitutes.[76] By 2010, more than 100,000 Korean women had married U.S. soldiers and moved to the United States.[74][75] Therefore, South Korean women married to foreigners are often viewed as prostitutes.[27] Marriages between South Koreans and foreigners often carry a serious stigma in South Korean society.[76] A woman who is Joongang Ilbo general manager’s junior, married to a Spanish man said that almost 100 percent of middle-aged South Korean men look her up and down when she walks hand in hand with her husband.[77]
In popular culture[edit]
The Evil Night (1952) and A Flower in Hell (1958) by Shin Sang-ok depict South Korean prostitutes.[78][79] Silver Stallion (1991) by Chang Kil-su depicts one prostitute symbolizing the raped nation of Korea.[26] Spring in My Hometown (1998) by Lee Kwang-mo depicts one prostitute waiting for her American lover who never returns.[26] Address Unknown by Kim Ki-duk depicts the lover of a prostitute who never returns to South Korea.[26]
The play Seven Neighborhoods Like Warm Sisters depicts prostitutes living near Camp Humphreys.[80][81]
Song Byung-soo depicts prostitutes in Shorty Kim (1957).[26] A Stray Bullet by Yu Hyun-mok depicts one woman who becomes a prostitute to rescue her family.[26] Lee Moon-yul is depicted in What Crashes, Has Wings (1988).[26]
Camp Arirang is a 1995 documentary that claims one million females had been involved in prostitution up until 1995.

    Thank you for maintaining a friendly website for Japan and what a sad fate of women in Korea I wasn’t aware of before. I believe it doesn’t excuse Korea from unjustifiably bashing Japan, however and it should require Korea even more to act justly. Please delete it if the post was inappropriate.

    Asahi shinbun claimed it used a witness of a lying Kiyoharu Yoshida in early 90s about Korean comfort women by “mistake”. Since it was a simple human error they claim they have no need to apologize to the world and Korean statues were built all over the USA and maybe in Canada, too. When a journalist Akira Ikegami criticized the way Asahi shinbun handled its mistake, Asahi shinbun tried to manipulate his article, but failed. Asahi shinbun also printed articles against Fukushima engineers who risked their lives to save the country during 3/11 disaster. I believe any Japanese or even the government has a right to sue Asahi shinbun for libel, but I guess Japan is different from Korea who would arrest Sankei shinbun journalist and would never release him until Obama pressured it. Korea sounds just like China to me.

    Koreans seem to hate Japan and our male chauvinistic culture as if Korea and China are better developed in the arena. (Hong Kong and Taiwan are not included when I say China.) I used to believe in Korean Americans and what Asahi Shinbun wrote, but I never will anymore until maybe Asahi Shinbun publishes through GLOBAL apologies.

    If Korean males remained silent while their daughters were being kidnapped by the Japanese military, especially until in 90s, they were indeed cowardly. For Korean Americans, I must say their religion of Christianity is hypocritical and meaningless when they try to dig up the past in the 21st century.

    Korea and Japan signed “Japan‐Republic of Korea Basic Relations Treaty” in 1965. In an accompanying pact article 2, Korea has agreed to completely and conclusively release the right to claim all national/personal grievances, which included what was signed in 1951 San Francisco peace treaty article 4 (a). When $1 = ¥360, Japan gave Korea 300 million dollars, invested another 500 million dollars both by the government and private companies which was more than double of then Korea’s national budget. Korea achieved high economic growth called “Miracle on the Han River”, some democracy, and was able to be a part of the developed countries. Korea’s current economy may be in bad shape, but it shouldn’t expect or demand any more from Japan by bringing up an exaggerated version of WWII. I wonder what they are taught in history class or at church. Korean government has used the money Japan paid as she saw fit and if any private citizens are dissatisfied with their economy, they should question their own government and stop acting as if yakuza would towards us.

    Korea or China accuse us for building up the military force, but Korea has no right to say anything when in 1953 Korea itself has invaded Takeshima Island. Takeshima has been a Japanese territory since late 17th century at least and Japan will win if we chose to go to the Hague Tribunal. What is surprising is that only 60% of Japanese know that Takeshima belongs to Japan. We indeed may be in need of rewriting history and teaching different versions as China and Korea claim.

    Thanks, but I’ve written all I’ve ever wanted at least for now and I just wanted to express how an amateur Japanese may be feeling right now. There should be someone who can explain Japanese view better than I do.
