The erectile dysfunction drug Viagra tops the list of goods being smuggled into Korea.
The Korea Customs Service said Thursday that some 40 million lots of smuggled goods were seized in the last three years, adding up to a total official market price of W1.6 trillion (US$1=W1,207).
They included some 19.22 million fake Viagra pills. The same amount of the genuine article would cost W207.6 billion.
The next most-commonly smuggled product was another erectile dysfunction drug, Cialis, followed by 3M products and yet another erectile dysfunction drug, Levitra.
In money terms, smuggled Viagra was followed by Rolex watches (W162.9 billion), followed by Louis Vuitton bags (W144.6 billion), Cialis (W108.5 billion) and Cartier watches (W99.4 billion).
