S Koreans urged to take holidays

South Korea's workaholics are being encouraged to change their mentalities.

    As a nation, South Korea is still just getting used to the idea of having a weekend.

    By next year, all enterprises are required to provide two days off in a week to employees.

    But that hasn't stopped workaholics from voluntarily doing over-time, all the time.

    Now, the government is taking a harsher approach, as Laura Kyle reports from Seoul.
