Former sex worker in KoreaAdd to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
Young-mi Jang, 70, who for nearly two decades earned her living as a sex worker outside a U.S. military base, sits in her tiny one-room home in the Anjeong-ri neighborhood of Pyeongtaek, South Korea. She and other retired elderly sex workers, who still live close to a giant U.S. base, participate in the Sunlit Sisters Center, a ministry supported by United Methodist Women. Two rescue dogs live with her. She's holding Poptori ("Lucky"), who she found one day as he was searching through the trash for food. "I gave him that name because he was lucky I found him," she said.
