Miniskirts could be banned in South Korea as a controversial 'overexposure law' comes into effect this week.

Those deemed to be overexposed in public will face a fine of 50,000 KRW (£30) under the new law.

But the law has been met with criticism after being passed by new president President Park Geun-hye at her first Cabinet meeting.

I speculate that this is a result of the tension they are under with N. Korea making threats of war and testing weapons.

The human tendency during crises of war is to cover up. Miniskirts just scream vulnerability.

It's their country they can do what they want.  Unless everyone objects then they will have problems.

Clearly they're tired of being the second most oppressive Korea.
Tomorrow - everyone must wear spats!

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

You may think you're cool, but you'll never be as cool as Peter Capaldi with an electric guitar, on a tank, playing the Doctor Who theme.

This is an outrage!!!Trying to ban one of mankinds greatest achievements!!!Someone has to stop this and im not joking  :cry:

"If it is not advantageous,do not move.If objectives can not be attained,do not employ the army.Unless endangered do not engage in warfare.The ruler cannot mobilize the army out of personal anger.The general can not engage in battle because of personal frustration.When it is advantageous,move;when not advantageous,stop.Anger can revert to happiness,annoyance can revert to joy,but a vanquished state cannot be revived,the dead cannot be brought back to life."

Hmmm, didn't see this one coming. What sparked this? And what do they truly hope to achieve with this?

well at least we're saved from seeing pre puberty young ladies running around not knowing how to wear a mini properly

That's communism?

Crikey Moses, I am beginning to think democracy and capitalism are somewhat overrated.

Koreans are ultra conservative, just watch one of their dramas.  The sexiest thing they'll have is kissing.  This mini skirt thing is the western insurance on style and culture.  What South Korea is going through with is growing pains.  Their culture is changing and this is    
the different views between older and younger generations.
