How is the ban enforced: South Korean residence have given up some forms of privacy in order to have safer online experiences. Their KSSN (Korean Social Security Number) is tied with their accounts. This protects against identity theft as once an account is made with one KSSN, no other accounts can be made in their name. It also creates the infamous gated community that locks out foreigners from participating in their online game servers (for most games).
Note: This does not affect ability to play during other hours in anyway
I support this actually. No matter how you put it, I've seen extensive gaming into the night as a cause for severe problems in school academics (including myself).
You also have to understand that Korea is a nation based on really big cities that have PC-bangs (computer labs specifically built for people to game) as far as the eye can see in them. For super cheap rates (about 1 dollar for an hour) can have you playing games installed on those computers for extensive amounts of time. This of course leads to a much higher interest in gaming than you see in the US.
What do you think (also give the reason behind your answer too...this is after all the GD board).
