2. Football fiasco: FC Seoul accused of placing sex dolls in home stands


[1] FC Seoul posted a formal apology on social media on Monday for putting mannequins, which many contend are sex dolls, in the stands for the team’s first home game of the season, which was held Sunday without spectators.

*in the stands: 관객석
*spectator: 관중

[2] “We apologize to all the fans for causing deep concern regarding the cheer-mannequins set up during the game on the 17th. Although the mannequins differed from previous ones in that the material is human-like, from the start we confirmed that these products were not adult goods,” posted FC Seoul.

*adult goods: 성인용품

[3] FC Seoul beat Gwangju FC 1-0 at Seoul World Cup Stadium, but the victory was dampened by the fans disgusted by the display of mannequins in the stands.

*dampen: 약화되다
*disgust: 혐오감, 넌더리

[4] The mannequins, which some fans pointed out looked like sex dolls, were placed in the stands as the games were held without spectators due to the spread of COVID-19.

*point out: 지적하다

[5] “(The company’s) name and signs with the specific BJs’ names were shown. This is due to our officials not checking in detail. This part is completely our fault,” FC Seoul said in the apology.
