A ludic world
It is thus not surprising to note that Koreans are big Internet users. One particular aspect of Korea is the existence of organised online video game leagues (such as Global Starcraft 2 League): there are official competitions based around the game Starcraft that allow professional gamers to earn a living while playing in front of a crowd of tens of thousands of people. Video games are also widespread on specialised sites and appear more and more on social networks. Social networks such as Facebook however, are precursors as Korea has only recently started showing an interest in this new way of playing. Korea is however, rapidly catching up with the others.
