[The Hankyoreh, August 1 2008] Restricted rating for films ruled out

Rating boards standards are arbitrary, Constitutional Court says

The Constitutional Court ruled that a clause in the law on film and video promotion, which permits film and video to be rated as “restricted,” is does not conform to the Constitution, meaning that the law is still in force until a new law revision is implemented

The ruling is intended to clarify what qualifies as a “restricted viewing” rating thereby diminishing the significance of the Korea Media Rating Board’s rating system, which has been criticized by the nation’s film industry.
