A modeling/celebrity agency was caught forcing their trainees to take out loans for the company and not only sleep with the CEO but provide sexual services to others for the promise of a debut and plastic surgery work. They took videos to prevent the women from reporting it to the police. Some were even flown out to Singapore to work at a club there and one reported to providing sexual services as well.

1. [+1,011, -39] The agency is obviously trash but the women involved are just as stupid. How could you lend money and your body just because someone promises to make you a model?

2. [+781, -92] Why is it that I'm taking away from this the notion that women think about selling their bodies as nothing if they can get plastic surgery and a model debut out of it? Are women really like this nowadays? So if they really did end up debuting as a model, the sex would have been nothing, right? At the end of the day, the difference between sexual assault and consensual sex is how the woman uses it to her advantage, it seems.

3. [+609, -106] So pathetic... give your money, your body... The agency's full of bastards but what were these women thinking? They were too blinded by the promise of a spotlight. Those videos should be released so that they can't live in this country again. Do they not have respect for themselves as women? Spreading their legs for the promise of money?

4. [+36, -3] It's because stupid women like them that exist that these agencies can continue to do things like this. Red flags should've been raised when they were asked to take out loans.

5. [+32, -0] Model 9 is a pretty popular agency, no? I guess agencies are dirty wherever you go. Remember how Joo Ho Sung found out that Lee Soo Man made Jang Nara sing at a pub bar and he chased after him with an axe..... Joo Ho Sung was not overreacting at all.

6. [+29, -7] Sad part is that it's not only a minority of agencies but the majority

7. [+25, -2] In the end, the decision is up to you. I auditioned for a movie and got in but they expected money and sexual services so I just left. It's been three years and that movie still hasn't been released. The decision's up to you, I don't know why people try to justify their actions when they were greedy and did what they ultimately didn't have to do. Don't act like the victim when you acted on your own free will.

8. [+21, -3] So if they did all that and debuted, this wouldn't even be in the news. They only reported it because they didn't get what they wanted.
