Googling Adult Content in Korea

Search industry giant Google announced that it will implement age verification for its services in Korea to prevent kids from accessing adult-themed searches. 700 “adult” keywords will be included in this program so that anyone searching and wanting to access content on those keywords will be required to prove they are 19.

I wonder if this will be a prelude of things to come in other countries.
