Great video. Korea is so bizarre. I watch a lot of professional Starcraft (it's the 2nd most popular sport over there after baseball), and it was a similarly sweatshop-like industry. In the 20 years of Starcraft 1, basically no non-Korean pro ever beat a Korean pro. The Koreans lived in team houses where they would be contractually obliged to play at least 16 hrs a day non-stop, while non-Koreans practiced like you'd expect an American video game player to practice. It's always been strange to me to hear some of the non-Korean players lauding the Koreans for their work ethic, when it's clearly a symptom of the overall fucked up capitalist culture.
