Squo Solves – Prostitution in South Korea is steadily declining Dujisin, staff writer for IPS news, 2009 (Zoltan, “Prostitution Thrives with U.S. Military Presence ”, accessed at http://ipsnews.net/news.asp?idnews=47556, accessed on June 27, 2010, KK) There has been a reduction in prostitution of Korean women, which "has more to do with the work of non-governmental organisations and the fact that Korea has developed economically," while "there is no contact with the U.S. authorities.

Chuck Johnson, action officer for USFK’s Prostitution and Human Trafficking Working Group, said U.S. troops’ participation in prostitution was "a major issue" when the group formed five years ago. Now, about five servicemembers a year get into trouble for prostitution-related crimes, and the lack of business has forced some brothels outside U.S. military installations to close , he said.
