Korea to ban drinking in public parks

  • The Seoul Metropolitan Government said Thursday it is pushing to ban drinking in public parks starting next year to enhance public health and reduce disturbances.

    The municipal government said it submitted to the land ministry last month a proposal of revising relevant law to prohibit drinking in the city's 2,000-odd parks. Smoking is not allowed in public parks according to law, but no similar rules exist for drinking.

    Reacting positively to the proposal, the land ministry is now reviewing it, the city said, adding it expects the revised law to take effect early next year.

    "It aims to minimize disturbances caused by drunk men and to promote public health," a city official said. "Drinking will be allowed only at snack bars in the parks, and violators will face a fine of 50,000 to 70,000 won." - PNA
    Romans 8:38-39
    "For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers,  neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord."

  • If we have smoking area, we should have drinking area too. This can make decency for the people in the public and neatness in the surroundings.
