No More Miniskirts In South Korea?


Will K-Pop girl group Girls Generation have to ditch their microshorts? Will police patrol clubs in Gangnam with rulers to measure miniskirts? Is South Korea returning to its days of over-the-top censorship? These questions have charged social media this week in South Korea ahead of a revised ‘overexposure law’ that goes into effect on March 22. Under the decree, approved by the new government during President Park Geun-hye’s first Cabinet meeting earlier this month, people deemed to be ‘overexposed’ in public will be subject to a fine of 50,000 KRW (US$45).” w/ photos
