(Scroll down for video) A man was arrested after blackmailing good-looking women to get them to have sex with him.

Jung Park, 41, of Koreatown, California, was arrested by the Los Angeles Police Department. He was released after posting $100,000 bail.

Police said that the photographer placed advertisements in Korean language newspapers seeking body paint models.

He then touched them inappropriately, and blackmailed them into not reporting the abuse.

According to police, Park asked the women to undress and pose for nude photos. He began inappropriately touching them and tried to rape them, police said.

When they rejected his sexual advances, he threatened to report them to the Immigration and Naturalization Services and have them deported.

One brave woman came forward and told police about the sexual abuse. When the story broke, other women came forward with similar tales.

Police believe that there are more victims and are asking women to come forward regardless of their immigration status.
