After the matter dropped from sight for two years, now the case of Chinese smuggling human flesh capsules into South Korea has once again reappeared. Public opinion believes that this not only destroys morality, but also poses serious safety risks.

Human flesh capsules are made from dead fetuses (stillbirths or abortions). The capsules are then sold to the private individuals. Some people believe that the fetus has an all-round tonic effect, so there is both supply and demand.

South Korea’s SBS News reported that, according to the Korea Customs Department on September 28, Kim Yeong-seon, a member of the Korean National Power Party, said that South Korean Customs had discovered 6 cases of someone smuggling human flesh capsules over a six-year period from 2016 to 2021. A total of more than 1,000 capsules were seized in the luggage of travelers entering South Korea.

The first seizure of human flesh capsules at Korean Customs was in 2011, causing an uproar in Korean society.

Then, to find out the truth, the Korean broadcaster SBS went to China to investigate and film part of the process of Chinese hospitals colluding with black market employees to sell fetal corpses and then make the capsules. The investigative report was revealed to the media in August 2011.

The scenes in the investigation by SBS show a small and medium city in China. According to reports, black market workers took the frozen fetuses (from 6 to 8 months gestation) from the hospital, after drying them by machine. They sent them to a factory to grind the fetuses and pack the results into capsules.

Human flesh capsules are described as being a tonic sold on China’s black market, bought by North Koreans in China, and smuggled into South Korea to sell at high prices on the black market. 

In 2011, Korea’s National Institute of Scientific Investigation analyzed the ingredients of several human flesh capsules seized by Customs and found hair-like substances in them. The test results show that the gene sequence of this capsule is similar to that of humans, even being able to identify the sex.

Official Korean investigations show that between 2011 and 2013, there were more than 100 smuggling cases of human flesh capsules in South Korea, and more than 60,000 capsules were seized.

In May 2013, a North Korean man in China was also arrested for selling human flesh capsules. He had smuggled human flesh capsules from China to South Korea in early 2004.

In October 2013, a Chinese female student was detained by South Korean police for violating the Pharmacy Law by selling human flesh capsules on Jeju Island under the brand name of a weight loss drug.

Lee Seung Won, president of the Korean Association for the Ethics of Organ Transplantation (KAEOT), told The Epoch Times that human flesh capsules sold on the Chinese black market are constantly being smuggled into South Korea. All this shows that under the rule of the Chinese Communist Party, atheists’ illegal behavior toward the human body has no moral limits. At the same time, it also shows that the Chinese people under the CCP’s rule lack a basic moral awareness of human remains, as well as an awareness of the law.

Lee stressed that Korean society should “continue to openly discuss any and all cases and apply pressure to stop human meat processing activities and secret trade taking place in China.”

Human flesh capsules not only destroy human morality, but also pose a serious health safety risk.

The Korea Food and Drug Administration revealed that human flesh capsules are a dangerous item that can infect. In 2012, test results by the Korea Food and Drug Administration showed that 18.7 billion bacteria could be detected in a human flesh capsule, and hepatitis B virus was also found.

Kim called, “For the safety of the Korean people, unsuitable items should be completely prevented from entering Korea during the Customs process.”
