Football club FC Seoul has been fined W100 million by the K-League for placing sex dolls in spectator seats during a home game on Sunday against Gwangju.
The club has denied it knew that 10 out of 30 mannequins that had been placed in the stands to amuse TV audiences and make players feel less alone in the lockdown stadium were sex dolls.
But the K-League in a disciplinary meeting on Wednesday levied the fine and also ordered a K-League staffer who introduced the mannequin company to the club to be docked three months' worth of wages for negligence of duty.
The mannequins were supplied for free in a spectacular marketing coup that made the club a global laughing stock.
FC Seoul has threatened to sue the supplier, which clearly advertises "adult products," but seems at a loss for what.
