In a country where Internet addiction is a growing concern and playing StarCraft is considered a sport, South Korea is taking the necessary measures to curb “illegal [and] harmful information” according to NEWSis. The South Korean government is reportedly preparing to block profanity and pornography on smartphones owned by teenagers by installing special software on their devices.
