BBC News reports the South Korean government is rolling out a policy that aims to curb the amount of time children spend playing online games. One part of the policy involves a gaming curfew, that intends to prevent young people of school age from playing online games between midnight and 8am.
The first involves barring online gaming access to young people of school age between 12am (midnight) and 8am.
The other policy suggests slowing down people's internet connections after they have been logged on to certain games for a long period of time.
The Culture Ministry is calling on games providers to implement the plans.
It is asking the companies to monitor the national identity numbers of their players, which includes the age of the individual.
Parents can also choose to be notified if their identity number is used online.
