FROM THE MARMOT'S HOLE AND I CAN NOT FRACKING BELIEVE THIS STORY. SO IF A FOREIGNER DOES IT, ITS WRONG AND ILLEGAL? BUT IF A 40+ YEAR OLD KOREAN MAN DOES IT, THEN IT OK AND ALL RIGHT? SERIOUSLY, WTF? 13 YEARS OLD, THAT IS 12 US AGE.
However, just so you know, according to the Busan district court it is not illegal to pick up 16 year old homeless girls:
A local high court found a 46-year-old man not guilty of having sex with a runaway teenage girl, saying their liaison was neither forced nor in exchange for money.
…Kim bought food for the 16-year-old girl, who was wandering near Seoul Station, and allowed her to stay at his home in December 2006.
…The court also found Kim not guilty of violating the laws governing the protection of adolescents, saying, “They had sex, but she did not demand money and he did not give her money. He provided her with shelter, food and about 20,000 won pocket money, but there is no evidence that the offering was in exchange for sex.’
The article goes on to point out the age of consent in Korea is 13, as long as there is no coercion or money changing hands.
