The lights are on
What do you do if you're a parent in South Korea who is fed up with your child's StarCraft II marathons? Send them to boot camp, where they endure every trial the average soldier faces; endurance sessions in harsh conditions, endless exercise, and moderated technology use.
All Voices has a photos series of punished students who have missed school, received poor grades, or lack motivation in life because of video game addiction. The entire purpose of the rigid course is to train the teens to respect themselves and find more ambition in pursuing creative endeavors.
Kang Han-Sol, a 15-year-old boy in the program, said “My mom forced me to take this
course because I have played video games too much. I hope this course
would better me, so I could quit playing and give more focus on
All my parents ever told me to do was go play outside...

Brutal! these kids look like they're having a rough time of it

So they have the kids lay down and hold their legs up in the air in different weather conditions? lol. Nah, fu*k all that. I'd just as soon play a game where I'm a game-addicted south korean kid whose parents force them to go to boot camp- now that might be fun =)
I lol at this.
is it torture or boot camp? these kids look like there dying
How is this not child abuse?

When I was that age, if I played too much my parents just took the console away.
Wow, its amazing that even in Korea parents have lost the ability to discipline their children. Sad, just sad.....
Well, at least it's better than eating raw dogs.
