I didn’t know that South Korea was one of the most wired nations. So it kind of makes sense that they have got a Rehab camp for www addicts. Apparently around 30 per cent of South Koreans under 18, or about 2.4 million people, are at risk of becoming addicted. Wow, what a number.
â€œThey come here, to the Jump Up Internet Rescue School, the first camp of its kind in South Korea and possibly the world, to be cured,â€ the New York Times reported.
People seem to not take Internet addiction seriously. Clearly it’s not just happening in South Korea or China.
The rescue camp is located in a forested area and was created to treat the most severe cases of Internet addiction. It is funded by the government making it tuition-free.
