What is happening in the world right now? People don’t really think of crimes in real-life. However, what people know is just the tip of an iceberg. There are tragic events happening around the world, such like murders, rapes, and forced labors. One of the infamous events is called Organ Trade which is illegal and unethical. In this essay, why it happens and how it happens in USA, China and Korea will be discussed.

One of the reasons why Organ Trade happens is poverty. People in low society class tend to give their labors, but they earn little money so it is no useful at all in truth.

However, forced organ trade doesn’t require agreement. In 2011 of Korea, a movie called The Man From Nowhere released and it was a box office hit. It was a movie which satirized the merciless reality of our society. The plot of the movie was all about a man saving a little girl who was kidnapped by organ traders and drug sellers.
