Following an investigation led by Beijing police from April 20 to May 30, 48 karaoke bars were closed for being involved in prostitution and other illegal activities. Among these were three well-known establishments: Ming Hang, You Tang and China Town. It was also revealed that certain establishments were shut down on account of "obscene strip dance performances", while others were closed for failing to implement an IC card system. Wan Chai Love KTV bar and Korea Fang KTV bar were also investigated by police and punished as a consequence of the 110 public complaints filed against them. In the next stage of the investigation set to take place this summer, police plan to increase the number of KTV bar inspections in order to improve methods of control and safety.
