A nine-story brothel in the now famous upscale Gangnam neighborhood in Seoul, South Korea, was raided by police Monday.

Yes, that’s the same Gangnam of Psy fame.

Officers said they discovered 100 prostitutes working on the various floors. The brothel was fronted by a bar and hotel where the women worked officially as “hostesses.”

GlobalPost’s senior correspondent for East Asia, Geoffrey Cain, reports that the brothel was in a ward of Gangnam called Samseong-dong, not far from the main drag of lively restaurants and shops.

Cain said that “Gangnam is known for decadence, even though it’s not a red light district.”
