South Korea wants to block nudity and profanity on teenager phones

The South Korean government is taking censorship to the next level — for teenagers at least. In an attempt to prevent cyber-bullying, the Ministry of Gender Equality and Family has plans to install software on teenagers’ phones that will block swear words and “illegal and harmful information.”
The government also plans to continue it’s never-ending war against pornography at the same time by requiring compulsory filtering services by mobile carriers that will block things such as pornography and nudity from being accessed.
I guess there’s a price to pay when you live in the country considered to have the fastest internet connections in the world.
