SEOUL: Twenty-five-year-old Malaysian Rina (not her real name), had imagined a life similar to what she saw on Korean dramas when she responded to an advertisement about jobs in South Korea.

Posted on Facebook by a Malaysian agency, the advertisement said applicants could make a lot of money quickly and eventually obtain legitimate work permits in South Korea if they worked hard.
