      Taiwanese singer Estrella Lin, a former member of girl group 3EP Beauties, says her agency tried to pimp her to business investors while she was seeking to develop her career in Korea. Her attempt was not successful, and now Lin has returned home and published a book revealing the dark side of the Korean entertainment business, the Taiwanese media said Friday.

      In the book, Lin details how she was asked to provide sexual services and subjected to inhumane treatment. She was also asked to change her year of birth from 1980 to 1985 as she was considered too old.

      Lin wrote that any popular singers in Korea, regardless of gender, are pimped for sexual services but claimed that despite being frequently asked to sleep with investors, she stubbornly refused.
