The Ministry of Gender Equality and Family on Wednesday announced that time limits on adult-rated programs will be expanded from Oct. 1 to protect children. The announcement follows an enforcement decree of youth protection laws announced in February.
Currently, adult-rated TV programs are banned from 1 p.m. to 10 p.m. on weekdays, and from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on public holidays and vacations. But from October, that will be expanded from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. to 10 p.m. on weekdays and from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. on holidays. Advertising for alcohol, tobacco and private loan companies is also banned at those times.
