According to a BBC News I've read, Koreans are now 'encouraged' to go home early & make more babies. This is being imposed by the Ministry of Health to counter the threatening low birth rate in the country by turning off the lights at 7 so that their employees will be forced to go home.
They want to encourage staff to go home to their families and, well, make bigger
ones. They plan to repeat the experiment every month.
This sounds a bit funny for some but it's a manifestation of how desperate the ministry is in doing their job to stimulate the birth rate. They also offer gift vouchers to officials who have more than one child & organize gatherings for a prospective matchmaking. They believe that the employees within the ministry shoul lead as a good example.
Looking at those baby pictures makes me wonder why most of them don't want to have little angels by their sides until I've read the core reason of the main problem. Koreans are blaming the burdensome education & child care cost.
I think the gov't should address those first before anything else.

Which one speaks more of a parental love?
Here in the Philippines some parents are not bothered about the childcare & education cost. It's not because we are a prosperous country but because some parents just don't seem to care. As long as they gratify their sexual needs. I don't loathe Filipino parents. I am just speaking in behalf of those young victims of unwanted pregnancies, broken families, street children & so on.
(wag nyo kong istorbohin.nananaginip ako)
Koreans would rather not have babies than see them suffer.
KOrea is encouraging their people to reproduce while our country does family planning.
It's funny how the world seems to lose the balance. Almost everything is in it's extreme.
