I think this is so sad. Online gaming has become such an obsession in Korea (I am Korean American). I have visited Korea not too long ago and I saw so many game cafes there. There must have been one on every other block. They call it PC Bang, which means computer room. People come here to use the internet and play online games. They even serve food and people can eat while they play on the computer. I think the case of the parents neglecting their three month old is an extreme case but this just goes to tell you how onling gaming can ruin your family. I also read a korean newspaper about a college student who killed his mom because she kept scolding him for spending too much time on the computer and took it away. Technolgoy is a great tool in many aspects of professional, educational, and social life but only if it’s used appropriately. Too much of anything can be bad!
