South Korea is in the midst of a culture war over video game addiction. The South Korean Parliament is considering legislation that would put limits on video game advertising and also tax the industry’s revenue to help fight addiction. The country’s commitment to high speed internet infrastructure has helped to create a boom in gaming and young gamers. The BBC’s Mark Gregory tells Marketplace Tech the latest on the story.
