South Korean football club for using ‘sex dolls’ to fill seats in the stadium

The top-flight South Korean foot club FC Seoul has apologised after fans accused them of using sex dolls in the stands. FC Seoul insisted they were “premium mannequins” rather than sex dolls – but did admit they came from a supplier that produces sex toys.

And some of the dolls were holding signs advertising x-rated websites – despite pornography being banned in South Korea. The mannequins’ manufacturer told the BBC they had apologised to FC Seoul. But they also reiterated that the dolls were merely “premium mannequins”.

What really happened?

On Sunday, FC Seoul played their first home match of the K League season. The ground was empty. So before the match, a company called Dalcom offered to fill some of the empty seats, and the club agreed. In total, there were 30 mannequins – 28 of them female, and two of them male.

However, fans watching online noticed that some of the mannequins looked more like sex dolls – and some were advertising x-rated websites – leading to the club apologising on Instagram and Facebook.

Dalcom said the adverts came from a sex toy company who placed orders with Dalcom, and wanted to take pictures of the mannequins before the game. “They were supposed to take all the logos down before the game started. But there were several hairbands and logos left to be caught by public eye.”
