The Korean version of Enslaved is hosted by pop sensation Wooyoung from the K-Pop boy-band 2PM and tells the stories of real people affected by the human trafficking trade in Korea and the region: A-Ching, a young Vietnamese woman trafficked to Taipei as a forced sex worker; Cel, a young Filipina woman trafficked to Korea and forced to work as a nightclub hostess and Lin, a young Vietnamese man who was trafficked to China to carry out hard manual labour in a brick factory.
This short animated film highlights the strategies that traffickers use to lure victims into slavery and the warning signs to look out for.
Victims of trafficking are modern-day slaves, forced, defrauded, or coerced into various forms of labour or prostitution. It happens everyday, in countries all around the world. For more information visit http://www.mtvexit.org.
