A Catholic University of Korea College of Medicine survey of
622 college students in three Seoul-area universities found
that more than 9 percent of the 243 sexually experienced
participants had an STD. Premarital sex and STDs were also
more widespread among those teenagers who ran away from home.
A survey of 175 male and female teen runaways revealed more
than 54 percent (96) were sexually active, while 43.7 percent
(42 males and 21 females) had an STD.
