If caught, he will be the first case to be punished for “attempted teenage prostitution,” in accordance with a law which was put into effect this year, the National Police Agency said Tuesday.

Police suspect the man sent a message through an online chatting site on Jan. 2, offering money to the teenager named Song in exchange for having sex with him. Song reported it to the NPA’s cyber center.
