Thirty-seven-year-old Taesan Won, a Korean citizen who is himself in the country illegally, pleaded guilty in federal court in Alexandria and faces up to 10 years in prison.

Court documents show that Won admitted employing undocumented workers at Honey, his doumi business. Doumi Girls are Korean escorts. The women would be hired out to work at clubs catering to the Korean community in Annandale.

Won earned up to $4,000 a month running his business. Court documents show that he typically charged customers $70 an hour to sing, dance and flirt with a doumi woman. The woman would keep $50 and Won would get $20.

Another co-conspirator in the case set up a housing dormitory for the women in the Lafayette Forest Community of Annandale.
