Sex, cults and the bizarre world of Providence leader Jeong Myeong-seok - 2017-12-11
Recruiters are known to be active in and around shopping centres and university campuses and are said to target tall, attractive women to become spiritual brides for the leader.
Once they are inducted, new members are then encouraged to sever ties with friends and family and to live in a communal house with other members.
It has been reported that female recruits were encouraged to have sex with Jeong in order to attain purification.
He is due to be released on parole in early 2018.
