From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Korea Media Rating Board (KMRB) is a ratings organization in South Korea. They rate movies, videos, stage performances, and phonogrames. The current chairperson is Kyung-Soon Lee.

Initially, the KMRB also rated video and computer games; However, they rated a gambling game machine called Sea Story as if it were an ordinary game, due to a bribe, confusing the Korean game industry. After some controversy, the Korean government established the Game Rating Board for rating games in 2006.


There are five ratings used by the KMRB:

The board rated video games until 2006, when they were caught accepting a bribe to rate Sea Story – a gambling game – as suitable for all. After this, a separate organisation, the Game Rating Board was split off from the KMRB to handle video game ratings.
