    Someone in the group could have called the cops just to get their names in the news.

    it is common practice that sex workers are sent (specifically) from south korea.. perhaps that’s why when these young girls came at airport raised suspicion to the airport officials.

    But, what make me wonders is why their agency (Oh My Girl’s agency) unable to convince the airport that these girls are a korean girl group??

    to be fair…they sort of are sex workers…They’re very young girls told to be flirty and sexy for the profit of some huge corporation…they probably don’t actually have sex with anyone for money, but their sexuality is for sale

    Glad to know there are some things the USA is doing to stop child trafficking. It is a huge problem world wide. Pretty incredible they did not have the documentation and chaperones to get thru that checkpoint.
