5 K-Pop Group Oh My Girl Detained at LA Airport on Suspicion of Being sex Workers

The eight members of OMG were travelling to America for an album cover shoot but were detained for 15 hours in customs at LAX who accused them of being sex workers.

“As young women, they were mistaken as ‘working women’ which has recently been a big issue in the U.S. ”
WM Entertainment said in the Korean-language statement. 

According to the management team, there was also a dispute over visas with the group stating they didn’t need a performance visa, since they were only doing a promotional event and not a concert. 

The overzealous actions of the customs at LAX may in part due to the growing problem of “doumi girls” in Korean bars in the US.
