Increase of ‘Human Flesh Capsules’ Smuggled Into Korea

From News1

23,898 ‘Human Flesh Capsules’ Intercepted… Twice as Much as Last Year

Customs officials are looking into human flesh capsules they have caught

Incheon Airport Customs announced on the 31st that it had seized 23,898 human flesh capsules carried by tourists so far.

According to Incheon Airport Customs, those who tried to bring capsule into Korea were all foreigners, and their purpose was either to take capsules by themselves or to hand them to their acquaintances living in Korea.

Since human flesh capsules are considered to be harmful on the human body and are viewed by many as disgusting, Incheon Airport Customs has strengthened its crackdown on smuggling human flesh capsules. As a result, people are trying to look for a different way to bring human flesh capsules into Korea such as through international mail, cases of which have increased 100 percent since last year.

Human flesh capsules consist of dried powder made from human fetuses, and some people take it for improving their stamina.

Meanwhile, dog meat capsules also consist of dried of dog meat powder, and it is known that these capsules have an awful smell.

Last year, Incheon Airport Customs intercepted over 468kg of human flesh capsules in 1715 separate violations as well as other food supplements such as dried powder of Rock Mamushi snake and toad extract that causes hallucination.

Incheon Airport Customs said that people are trying to smuggle those food supplements in the form of capsules or power these days as customs strengthen the crackdown on food supplements.

Kim Do-yeul, head of Incheon Airport Customs said, ‘We have found pernicious ingredients in these food supplements. When you purchase food supplements in China or South East Asian countries, you should check the ingredients carefully.’

He added, ‘I recommend people not to buy food supplements that do not display the ingredients. Once purchased, you must report them to customs when you enter Korea.’

Comments from Nate

goon****:

There are people who eat human flesh? Seriously?

agis****:

Human flesh capsules really exist? So scary. How do they eat humans ㅜㅜ

gus3****:

Dirty janggae, Tsk Tsk.

t_ma****:

We should have taken care of the Wu Yuanchun case in a better way.

shc8****:

Do not just blame China. Korea is almost the same. I heard over half of consumers are Koreans. I remember I saw that on TV before. Makes me want to vomit. What trashy bastards.

qntm****:

Is human flesh even nutritious? Just have beef.

prem****:

Janggaes like to eat human flesh. When the Chinese national holiday comes, they kidnap children, take their clothes off, fillet their bodies like fish as if they were slaughtering animals. It’s not fiction. This is what happening in China, and the Chinese government made it illegal to do this. However, even though it is illegal, there are still a lot of demands for human flesh, and that’s why all human flesh providers like Wu Yuanchun came to Korea to do their business. […] What I’m saying is all true – I’m not exaggerating. We should watch Chinese people entering Korea. There is no database for their finger prints, and even if they are caught, they will enjoy their life in prison like Wu Yuanchun does right now.

pret****:

Just spread words that cockroaches are nutritional supplements. They will be extinct within a few years then.

zqga****:

Do they really give these as a present? Those people have nerves of steel.

suji****:

Food X-File aired an episode about those capsules, which made me shiver. Some Joseonjok or Chinese put bunch of dead babies in a fridge. The bodies were then dried and ground into capsules. When they analyzed the genetic composition of the capsules, they found both male and female genes. It seemed mutiple bodies were mixed together and since those babies has miscarried or died right after birth with diseases, the capsules are filled with all kinds of germs and viruses. It’s spine-chilling to see those ajummas trying to get those pills to feed their husbands or sons. How can they even think of consuming the same humans? The Chinese pharmacist had lots of those pills to sell under the table. Human trash.

nask****:

Please kick out Joseonjok.

ejsk****:

Please stop consuming stuff like that. If you don’t buy it, it won’t be smuggled in. ㅡㅡ Some people try to eat just about anything if they are told it is good for health. If you care about health that much, do exercise regularly. So dumb.

    Dude… so disgusting. I have heard of people eating the human placenta, but human flesh pills? That is a new whole take on cannibalism…

    • markus peg

      I agree, i have never heard of human flesh pills, who the hell though of creating such a thing and why take them…

        These two comments where probably the most disturbing ones, they give me the creeps:

        ….

        I wonder how much truth is there to this?

        • asfd

          the thing about viruses seems a bit far fetched. viruses don’t thrive on dead matter. i’m thinking it’s more fiction than fact.

  • commander

    A rise in demand for the illegal product has two meanings.

    The first is that human traffickings and killings are increasing to meet the increasing demand. The second is that in some cases, the pills, believed to contain human flesh, can have unidentified ingredients that are pernicious to human health.

    The mounting influx of the illicit tablets suggests the presence of the black marekt that should be cracked down, evidence supporting President Park’s plan to ferret out black market into open for higher taxation to fund her welfare programs pledged during hher presidential campaign.

    The capsule smugglers is a force to push makers of unlawful items to make more killings for human flesh. This prospect was raised in a murder case involving a man kidnapping a woman to his home and killing her before dismembering her body for allegedly supplying human flesh for Chinese makers.

    In a possibility of connections to abductions and murders, the smugglers should face heavier punishment than other contraband ones do.

    • anom

      China won’t do anything about their human meat trade that’s flourishing in China. The killer who killed that woman in Suwon, killed her for her meat to be shipped to China to be sold in the markets there. Of course, Chinese government denies this.

      • the other guy

        I have heard about human trafficking & illegal organ harvest, but this is the first time I hear about “human meat trade” where do you get this news…

        This is so creepy, that it almost feels like something out of a snuff movie.

        • chucky3176

          I have Korean news sources that deals with China’s industry of organ harvesting by kidnapping Korean tourists to China, if you like. The relatives of that Suwon murder victim are also saying that the murder happened because of meat. The murderer was an expert butcher who cut up the body in neat slices, fellating the flesh off the bones, then put them into hundreds of freezy bags, as if you slice beef into pieces to keep them in the freezer. Pathologists agree that a crazy person who slice up the body to get rid of the evidence usually do so in crude uneven chops, but what this guy did was like an expert butcher slicing beef. Since the murderer entered South Korea from China in 2007, he was traced to several districts in South Korean cities, where a string of missing women were reported. He had no steady job, but he was able to afford dozens of trips back to China with reasons unknown, and had much cash in his bank account. It’s unexplained how he got all that money. For sure, he was engaged in some kind of illicit trade. Was it human flesh trade?

          • the other guy

            chucky3176, that sure sounds like an horror story. I have to admit that this news took me by surprise, I had not read or heard anything of the like before today.

            Whats wrong with the world!?

          • mr.wiener

            Got a link to that one Chucky? would appreciate it.

      • commander

        You need to distinguish between your wish for Chinese non involvement in such gruesome crimes and its allegations of killings for human flesh pills in China.

        The Suwon murder case represents a strong sign that China has involvement in human trafficking and disposal of dead bodies to make tablets for commercial purposes.

        The translated article, reporting the confistication of the illegal pills smuggled from China, is firm proof that groups of Chinese gangs are implicated in the manufacturing in an organized way, given the enormous volume of capsules seizure.

    • Moon Monkey

      Commander don’t be retarded.. They aren’t killing people for the capsules, they are using aborted or discarded babies to feed the need for Korean Crazies. I think they should just tag and track these shipments like they do weeds and arrest / publicly humiliate the people using them..

      • commander

        Although killing is not the primary method, it is hard to make a complete dissmissal of a linking between murders and pill making.

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/VictimOfBoredom Matt

    Just take a damn multivitamin.

    • Kate

      Thats far to normal, moral, and undisgusting enough for the people who consume these pills…. theyre to ♥♥♥♥ in the head for a multivitamin. ( ̄~ ̄)a

    • Sean Johnson

      Better yet, how about just eating a well balanced meal. The rest will take care of itself. This obviously goes way beyond obtaining a long and healthy life. The promotion and manufacturing of useless products for energy, weight loss etc etc just goes to show how ignorant we’ve all become. Everything the human body needs comes from nature in its purest form. What the hell are we actually trying to achieve by all this? Super Human status?? Can you imagine the state of all human beings in the next hundred years? Probably growing wings out of our backsides. WTF!

      And for those that keep talking about it not being Koreans. At the end of the day it only takes one idiot to come up with stupid shit for the rest to follow. Were all humans who fall short. Supply and Demand.

  • ChuckRamone

    What.The.Fuck.

    • Ruaraidh

      I always thought that the use of human foetuses in Chinese ‘medicine’ was an urban myth. That is fucking grim.

      • Kate

        Yeah i know right? I mean how utterly barbaric to eat dead babies…..cannabalism is just horrendous and if i were china i really wouldnt want the international rep of “baby eating country”. ( ̄~ ̄)a

  • TheKorean

    It’s always the jjangkae with crime and problems.

  • KCdude

    This reminds me of an old Korean movie about cannibalism. This is what you call a disgusting moment.

  • YourSupremeCommander

    Koreans are some sick fuggs.

    • Brett

      You’re an idiot.

      • YourSupremeCommander

        You are a jerk.

    • Kate

      I dont think its Koreans….i think the majority are going to the chinese here. Im sure some go to koreans but i think they are staying within chinese communities here….(ㆆ~ㆆ)a

  • nintendo-nerd

    If it’s ok to slaughter animals, eat their meat, and sell their fur for personal gain, why is it not ok to eat a fetus that’s already dead?
    Human beings evolved from animals. We are all savage beasts, whether we like it or not.

    • Brett

      Moral implications aside, it’s illegal. Don’t smuggle them in to South Korea.

    • the other guy

      Well, the problem as I see it -morality aside- Is that first of all, there is no way to know what is really inside those pills. Genetics can only determine so much…

      Second, this is a black market operation and therefore it is not regulated in any way… so what is the the problem, you might say? Well if this practice gets popular enough there is no way to say what will the “suppliers” might be willing to do to satisfy the ever growing market… Meaning? Child abductions… murders… etc…

      Finally I would like to add, that I personally find this disgusting. Placenta or not, this is borderline cannibalism.

      • nintendo-nerd

        Nah.. There’s not much difference digesting the meat of animals, or human.. it’s all basically the same.
        Baby animal > baby placenta = Meat is meat.

        • commander

          If your belief is so strong, then you would be ok if your babies who unfortuantely died of an incurable disease were ingredients for human flesh pills rather than buried in a graveyard.

    • commandet

      That kind of justification is a slippery slide to abetting abortions and acts of disregarding other lives.

      And dont count me as your group of beasts.

    • http://twitter.com/specialkpop SpecialKpop

      humans did not evolve from animals wtf

      • http://www.youtube.com/user/VictimOfBoredom Matt

        Humans ARE animals. And they certainly evolved from them.

  • http://www.joshmcfarland.net/ Josh

    Still a rather sickening thing, but I think the name human flesh pills might be a bit misleading. This article and others refer more to them as being aborted fetuses. At first glance the name human flesh pills makes me think about people killing adults and selling their flesh. Feel free to correct me if I’m wrong.

    • commander

      No one could be confident to say whether the disgusting pills are made of dead fetuses or not.

      The uncertainty in determining the makeup of the pills make reporters choose the term human flesh becasue it encompasses what you think is a more suitable naming.

      • http://www.joshmcfarland.net/ Josh

        Maybe, if they had mention of any doubt in the article that it was more than just baby fetus, alas the author did not. There is a degree of uncertainty in a good number of news articles and I still think you’re just adding onto the end of this article.

  • Demn

    now i know why World War Z started in China, its a shame that the chinese version is different

  • Your Sexy Cousin Rex

    Korean ppl always copying chinese culture now they too eat dead babies tsk tsk

    • TheKorean

      Yes, according to Waenom who still writes Chinese. ㅋㅋㅋ

  • kpopwillneverstop

    ….That’s fucking gross.

  • Woo

    This is really scary

  • Marty

    So why isn’t this a big issue in China where these pills are made? Because if Chinese government or media deny and ignore it, then the problem goes away and it doesn’t exist.

  • Whirly Pop

    I know someone who drank the piss of her daughter because it was said to be full of vitamins. -_-

  • Shawol

    I don’t really get shocked at stuff anymore but …. this. was. just. what. the. fuck.

  • bultak23

    i heard these capsules come from north korea. they are from incest babies.

  • liminala

    This sounds creepily like the antisemitic stories on record from Germany in the 20s and thirties – you know, where Jews kidnapped and ate children or lonely travelers. I think there are parallels – Korea is homogenous, but the Chinese immigrants have different language and culture… Racism is very present in Korea’s narrative. Also, I am sure there are some legitimate sources for this story, but Korean newspapers are far from bastions of journalistic integrity.

  • T

    I knew they had a tradition of having human excrete in old days, but this thing….. I cannot believe they are same human beings anymore. Not only the national invasion and fraudry against my country, thery realy is the shame of Asia.
