S Koreans caught in web addiction

Easy access to high-speed internet helps create gaming addictions among the young.

    South Korea is one of the most advanced countries in internet technology, having high-speed web access easily obtainable throughout the country.  

    But this advantage has come at a cost as more and more young people suffer from online gaming addictions that take over their day-to-day lives.  

    Chan Tau Cho reports from the capital, Seoul, on how the addiction is helping blur the line between real and virtual worlds for many people.
