Seoul's Metropolitan Police Agency have been targeting "screen golf" rooms that mix driving range golf with a virtual video-game-type screens. Some of these golf rooms sell alcohol and employ female entertainers in mini-skirts.

The virtual golf rooms measure the distance the ball travels, and the newest golf rooms feature game systems that can reproduce famous courses in 3D.


In a crackdown late last month, the police pinpointed 39 video golf rooms and booked 36 of them for violating laws on food cleanliness. Many of these video game rooms reported themselves as sports facilities, but took part in activities like selling alcohol and introducing customers to prostitutes.

Police say that these types of "perverted businesses" have increased in number. "We will continue to inspect new types of immoral businesses."
