Detectives determined the victims were six Korean national teenagers, male and female, ranging in age from 15 to 18. The victims were living with Woo Yi (A/M, 42 years old) and his wife, Hyun Yi (A/F, 41 years old). The parents of the six victims had paid Woo Yi more than $15,000 each to host their children while they attended local high schools. All six of the children lived with the Yi’s at their home: 3830 Regal Oaks Drive, Suwanee (unincorporated), Georgia. The children attended several different schools.
When detectives interviewed the six victims, they said that the Yi’s would provide them with alcohol and have them play games. The losers would be required to remove an item of clothing. After the victims were naked, Woo Yi would order them to kiss and touch each other. Detectives believe this happened four or more times.
Following the initial investigation, detectives placed Woo Yi and Hyun Yi under arrest for two counts of child molestation and six counts of furnishing alcohol to minors. They are currently being held in the Gwinnett County Detention Center without bond. Additional charges are under investigation. The victims have been placed in temporary homes at their parents’ request.
