Smoking ban in Korea

This is great news to non smokers!!  Korea is more advance than Singapore in terms of fashion and technology, but Singapore is much more ahead of Korea when it comes to smoking ban in public places ㅋㅋㅋ

"Starting December 8th, smoking in restaurants, bars, and bakeries will be gradually prohibited depending on the size of the business facility. A smoking ban on restaurants and bars 150㎡ and larger has already been put in place from December 8th and the restriction will be gradually applied to all restaurants and bars by 2015. 

Also, 20 different kinds of public facilities including buildings with a surface area of 1,000㎡ or larger, performance halls with 300 or more seats, schools, the National Assembly Building, and other government buildings also became non-smoking places starting in December. Meanwhile smoking in PC rooms will be restricted starting in June, 2013."
