How Not To Run A Whorehouse

Irvine, CA
  • Advertise on Craigslist where everyone, including the cops, can find you? Check.
  • Set up shop in a heavily trafficked, high class neighborhood? Check.
  • Bring in clientele that freaks out the neigbors? Check.

What could possibly go wrong?

Kyung Ah Lee, 34, Hyun Jung Shin, 28, and Su Jin Park, 34, have been picked up for running a prostitution ring out of an apartment in an upscale complex in Irvine. Seems they've been entertaining "gentlemen" at all hours from their 2-bedroom unit.

Advertising on Criaglist with the phrase, "hottie Asian girls waiting for you ... 1HR 160 roses for your good time ... open 11 a.m. until 2 a.m.," they managed to scare the neighbors enough with the quality and quantity of their customers that they called the cops a couple weeks ago, prompting an investigation. I'm sure the Engrish didn't help.

Lee was charged with felony pimping and conspiracy, Park and Shin with misdemeanor prostitution and keeping a house of prostitution. Seems Ms Park also has some immigration issues, as well. Lee is facing 6 years and the other ladies are facing a year each.

When we moved to soCal, our first apartment was in Irvine. The neighbors scared US. Talk about Stepford Wives come to life. Yikes. Couldn't wait to get out of that place. Even the token homeless guy was clean. A little scum would do them good. me stupid, naive, whatever....roses=dollars? Did that get you the whole enchilada?
