JYP has been boasting about the opening of his new restaurant in Manhattan. What he hasn't been talking about is the spanking he received last year and this year from New York City Government. Why? Back in October of 2011 the City closed down 1/2 of the JYPE building in Manhattan because of the illegal rooms in which JYPE had been housing the Wonder Girls.

The City pointed out that there was not even a sprinkler system in the rooms where the Wonder Girls lived and slept. So if there had been a fire in the JYPE building, there was only one exit (this is illegal and dangerous) and no sprinkler system. Obviously, if a fire had accidentally been started there, these girls would have been toast. The City has forced JYPE to change this situation.

The City declared these rooms "perilous to human life." So the City of New York OFFICIALLY declared that the Wonder Girls were living in housing that was "perilous" (dangerous) to human life.

Here is the official link from the City of New York. The "partial vacate order" refers to the fact that about one half of the JYP building in New York cannot be used until it is fixed properly and suitable for human habitation.


Click on ECB violations and you see that there are 7 violations still open against JYPE. Click on each individual violation and you'll see that JYPE had to pay approximately $15,000 in fines to the City of New York. For example, here's one ECB violation number for which JYPE had to pay $1,600: http://a810-bisweb.nyc.gov/bisweb/ECBQueryByN...

Click on this following link and you will be able to see that JYPE has been forced to hire a construction company to change about half of the building to bring it up to building codes. JYPE has been forced to pay $13,000 to this company.

The lap-dog Korean press is not reporting any of this. The restaurant is news in Korea, but the SPANKING JYPE has been getting by the City is being covered up. I don't think this is right. This is news and people should know about it. I mean, they were so cheap at JYPE they kept these girls in rooms the city considered dangerous to human life! Why isn't this news being shared in Korea to show another aspect of the JYPE experience in America? This is being covered up. This story alone shows there is NO free press in South Korea.

This recent news should come as no surprise given the stories that came out of NY in 2010. But these stories were not adequately followed up. If this company broke US Visa laws, why didn't the US Government enforce its own laws and do something!? They learned nothing from 911? Homeland Security and ICE are a joke.
