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.
