Once these [South Korean] women were there, they couldn't get out easily. They were raped continuously - raped by the manager. Anything the bar owner deemed necessary for a woman to attract [American] GIs to sell sex - make-up, clothing, some decoration in their hut rooms - was rented out to the women. If the women were ill or if they needed assistance to pay for a funeral for a family member, they would borrow from the bar owner. All of these expenses became part of their debt and unless you paid off this debt you couldn't leave.
