SEOUL, South Korea pulled the plug on young gamers after midnight by blocking access to game websites, in its effort to curb game addiction among adolescents.
The new system called the "Shutdown law" also referred to as the "Cinderella law" blocks those under the age of 16 from accessing gaming websites after midnight.
A 2010 survey found nearly 14%of 9 - 12 year olds in South Korea are internet addicts.
Can children be addicted to internet games and gaming? Does this impact the education of the child?
