HIV-positive woman arrested for prostitution in Busan

A woman who was arrested for prostitution in August this year turned out to be infected with HIV, according to Busan Nambu Police Station on Thursday.

The 26-year-old woman confessed that she had sold sex to at least 10 men in Busan to pay for the cost of living. She met the men through a chatting app and did not use any protection during intercourse. 


The suspect was living with her 28-year-old boyfriend, who brokered the prostitution deals despite knowing that she was infected with HIV.

Police are now trying to track down the sex buyers through the couple’s phone records.
