Previously, the country had a law prohibiting children under 16 from playing video games from 12 PM to 6 AM.
In 2011, South Korea passed a law banning teenagers from spending all night on a computer. This measure was originally intended to guarantee that teenagers could get a certain amount of rest.
However, in 2021, the Korean Ministry of Education abolished this practice. Different day-to-day realities are forcing people to spend more and more time in front of a computer. Therefore, control over the children will now entirely become their parent's responsibility.
By the way, similar restrictions have been applicable in China since 2019. According to local law, children can play video games for no longer than ninety minutes on weekdays and three hours on weekends. To enforce the rules, the authorities have developed a special programme to monitor online games activity.
