South Korea to Decide on Further Restrictions for Online Gaming and Minors

For South Korea, online gaming is a hot topic on the media. If you’re good at something like Starcraft II, you can earn a decent amount of fame and fortune off of your gaming skills. Sometimes, people may see online gaming as an opportunity to make something of themselves and play the game for hours on end. But a proposal is currently being decided upon which will limit online gaming for minors by 3 consecutive hours.

This would go on top of the current six-hour evening block which keeps minors under the age of 18 from accessing their online profiles which allows them to connect and game. The regulation comes from the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology to ban players’ accounts if they’re gameplay is detected to be on for more than the three-hours time. It’s still unknown how long minors will have to wait before they can play again without going over the limit, should the regulation go into effect.

It would be an uncertain future indeed if this type of regulation came to North America.

Daily Variety June 9, 2008 | LaPorte, Nicole When “Chicago” producers Neil Meron and Craig Zadan saw the phenomenally reviewed (and attended) Broadway revival of “A Raisin in the Sun” in 2004, they felt strongly that the play’s life shouldn’t be over when the curtain went down on the Great White Way. this web site movies to watch

Immediately, they began to ponder the tranistioning of the show to TV movie. The producers were particularly blown away by the Broadway debut of Scan “P. Diddy” Combs in the role of Walter Lee Younger–last played by Sidney Poitier. Combs was surrounded by an equally forceful cast that included Phylicia Rashad, Audra Mac Donald and Sanaa Lathan, and the producers felt that if they were to adapt the show, the Broadway cast should remain intact.

“The show itself is really about a family, and to get that chemistry–when you have a cast of people who have done it so brilliantly, and that are the most skilled actors around -why mess with it?” Meron says. website movies to watch

Not that they wanted to simply redo what had already been done on Broadway.

“We wanted to adapt ‘Raisin’ as a movie, but we were not remotely interested in shooting the play,” Zadan says. And so they had a screenplay written.

Although it took two years to get all the pieces in place, in part because of Combs’ busy schedule as a music producer and clothing designer, “A Raisin in the Sun” was broadcast Feb. 25 on ABC.

The show was an enormous coup for ABC, drawing 12.7 million viewers. “Raisin” was the highest-rated TV movie among women for the season as well as the top program among all households that night.

Reviews for the show, and for Combs–whose performance was his first major role on film-were equally outstanding, and the producers called up the star to tell him, “Hey, you got Meryl Streep reviews.” [ILLUSTRATION OMITTED] LaPorte, Nicole
