Gambling problems plague South Korea’s youth

The Korea Center on Gambling Problems (KGCP) claims that South Korea’s problem gamblers are getting younger and are becoming more resistant to treatment programs. In its report, KGCP said the majority of gamblers sought treatment for problem gambling behavior were in their 30s while the number of teenagers who sought treatment rose from 168 in 2015 to 1,027 this year. In addition, it is quite alarming that teenagers are not quitting gambling after receiving treatment. The KGCP pinned the blame of the youth’s problem gambling behavior to online gambling sites, which remains a prohibited acitivity in the country.
