K-League: FC Seoul fined 100 million won for sex dolls in stands


A South Korean club has been fined 100 million won (£66,500) by the K-League for filling empty seats with 'sex dolls' at their recent home match.

FC Seoul put 30 "premium mannequins" in the stands, with fans unable to attend because of coronavirus restrictions.

The club said they did not know the dolls were adult products and apologised on Monday.

Is this the future of football?

Genuinely thought that this thread was going to be about City. :lol:

Now I am a bit disappointed. :(

As for the fine, seems a bit harsh tbh.

I don’t understand why it matters if they’re dressed appropriately.
Always got the impression that South Korean culture and society was very big on morals, honour and rather straight-laced. Mind you, I've never been there or even to spoken to anyone from there.

I get the same impressions with Japan but have also seen contradictory stuff from there so who knows? Sometimes things to do with sex seem taboo, other times very much not. Japanese porn I've seen is censored, but then they have big anime breasts everywhere, seem to be into lolita stuff which is a bit dodgy to me, and I believe they have more nudity on tv than many other countries.

Why S dolls (premium) though.

Isn't it more budget- cheaper to get simpler low quality mannequins. Purpose is for visual aspects in camera to look like there are fans in the stadiums when match is ongoing. Then again I don't actually know the market prices.

Just curious.

:cool:And I wonder what they're going to do with those now that they are fined-thus has removed it. Also "they didn't know the dolls are adult products" is too bad of an argument. Benefit of the doubt, maybe they got duped into buying it.. unlikely but who knows.

Aren’t those sex dolls very expensive like five grand each?
Not that I have been researching sex dolls but watched a show on channel 4 one time about them..

Expensive but they don't cost you anything after that.
