According to reports from The Mirror, the fine slapped on FC Seoul was a record 100,000 won ($81,500). Following the coronavirus pandemic, a number of football stadiums across the world banned supporters from entering the stadiums to prevent a second wave of the deadly bug. The K-League began its season on May 8 but in order to create a similar atmosphere with fans inside the stadium, the South Korean side opted to fill their stadium up with mannequins, unaware that the mannequins were, in fact, sex dolls. The 100,000 won ($81,500) fine is the largest penalty for a club in the K-League's 38-year history.

About 20 sex dolls were placed inside the FC Seoul stadium as the mannequins wore the colours of the team jersey as well as face masks. Most of the mannequins were women with some of the "fans" displaying the t-shirts and placards with the SoloS logo, a sex toy selling company. Although FC Seoul registered their first win of the season against Gwangju FC at the FC Seoul Stadium, the win was overshadowed by the fine and shame for filling up the stadium with sex dolls.
