‘Room Salon’ in DC?

After years of living in Korea, it was odd to open the Post this morning in DC and find an article on authorities busting a local Korean room salon. Two people, the owner and the “primary ‘madam'”, were sentenced to jail for reportedly employing dozens of illegal immigrant women as … ahem, “hostesses.” This was the kind of stuff that kept Koreans from getting visa-free status to visit the U.S. until long after their economic development and income levels merited it. Read all about it in the brief Post article.
