Trailer For Love Child- A Documentary About Internet Addiction

(Video Link)

A South Korean couple were so immersed in the multiplayer game Prius Online that they let their child starve to death, raising questions about whether Korea’s “place as the world leader of Internet infrastructure has adversely affected its communal society”.

That’s the story behind the first plea of not guilty due to internet addiction that actually worked- a manslaughter case against Kim Yoo-chul and Choi Mi-sun that inspired Valerie Veatch to create the documentary Love Child, a timely documentary which recently played at the Sundance Film Festival addressing the problem faced by nations across the globe as our daily lives become more integrated with the Internet.
