Default Filipino "Juicy Bar" girls in Seoul, Korea - Denied as 'Entertainers' by Philippines

Philippines denies work permits for "entertainers" aspiring to become "juicy bar" girls in Korea

According to Yonhap, it appears that aspiring "juicy bar" girls in the Philippines will have a tougher time obtaining work permits to Korea. Apparently, the Filipino government doesn't want innocent girls "falling victim" to prostitution, the Stars and Stripes newspaper reported, Thursday.

But in this day and age, it's difficult to believe anyone seeking to work at a bar near an American military base in Korea is not aware that prostitution may be involved, indeed, is involved. No one, except perhaps the Filipino government who's least of all interested in painting their citizens in anything less than wholesome light.

Reported Yonhap: "The Stars and Stripes, a newspaper for U.S. forces overseas, said that the government in Manila has decided to reject requests from recruiters seeking authorization of Filipino women to work at the so-called 'juicy bars' prevalent near U.S. military bases in Songtan, Dongducheon, Osan, Pyeongtaek and elsewhere."

"These Filipino bar workers are hired to serve U.S. service members and talk them into buying them expensive juice drinks in exchange for their continued company and conversation. Those who failed to meet their juice-sale quotas are often the subject of 'bar fines', meaning they must sell sex to customers to make up the shortfall.

"After securing 'entertainer visas' from South Korea, these women must get their proposed employment contracts approved by the Philippines government.

"Many of these women actually come to Korea believing they are being hired to sing and dance, rather than sell drinks, let alone sex, to U.S. servicemembers, according to the Philippine Embassy."

But then, of course, what else could the Philippine Embassy say? That their entertainers are really prostitutes?

In any case, following the Philippine government clampdown, the number of bar workers traveling to Korea has purportedly dropped by 40 percent. Nevertheless, as water seeks its own level and demand seeks its own supply, Filipino "entertainers" have only been replaced by women from elsewhere, such as Russia, according to My Sister's Place, a non-profit organization who also apparently believes that "juicy bar" girls are "forced" into prostitution.

But once again, come on, who are we kidding here? Forced into prostitution? It would seem very unlikely.
