500,000 won per night… Illegal lodging business during the summer vacation season ‘Giseung’

With the holiday season in full swing, illegal accommodations are rampant at summer resorts.

It is to receive guests by decorating apartments or multi-family houses as accommodations.

Safety management is weak, and even if an accident occurs, it is difficult to receive compensation, so caution is required.

It is estimated that there are about 2,000 apartments and multi-family houses operating illegally in Gangwon-do alone.

Illegal accommodations are inevitably vulnerable to safety accidents because they do not undergo safety inspections.

In fact, three years ago in Donghae City, a gas explosion at an unreported lodging establishment killed seven people, including a family member.

It seems necessary to supplement the system to check registration in shared lodging apps.
