ANGELES CITY — Two Korean nationals allegedly caught selling shabu (crystal meth) were arrested by Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency operatives inside a motel in Barangay Malabanias here on Friday night.

Hong Daon, 45, and Song Won Seok, 40, were caught with P34,000 worth of shabu after they sold five grams of the narcotic for P10,000 to undercover agents, said Gil Pabilona, PDEA Central Luzon director.


Hong, according to Pabilona, works as an English translator and was the subject of a deportation order in 2016.

The Koreans moved from one hotel to another as they conducted their trade, he said.


They have been detained at the PDEA regional jail in the City of San Fernando, south of Angeles City.
