Save My Seoul
Jason Y. Lee / South Korea, USA / Documentary / 2015 / 62 mins

Save My Seoul follows Korean American brothers Eddie and Jason Lee as they discover rampant prostitution and sex trafficking in Seoul, South Korea. Along the way they meet two teenaged former sex workers, Esther and Crystal, who share their past experiences working in brothels in order to survive. Using hidden cameras, the brothers show the underground sex trade industry in a city that is typically perceived as clean and modern. They also examine the attitudes in Korean culture that keep people from speaking out on the issue.
