Love Child Reviews:

In the 1990's, South Korea was still trailing behind in the internet/online renaissance that incalculably impacted global communication, so in response to its tardiness, the South Korean government took a large risk in building and developing infrastructure that would not only improve South Korea's communication with the globe but create it one of the world's largest digital leaders. Its infrastructure, which greatly assisted in broadband, wireless, and wired connectivity propelled it to one of the main digital giants in the twenty-first century, but its prolific test of technology has also made it a nation affected greatly by "internet addiction." Valerie Veatch's Love Kid explores the concept of internet addiction in South Korea by using one of its most public situations as its thesis. In 2010, in the town of Seoul, South Korea, an infant kid was found dead from malnutrition directly because of parental neglect. The parents of the kid were found to enjoy an RPG minigame online for anywhere between six and twelve hours a day; a minigame that was, ironically, centered on raising and nurturing a virtual kid that would grow up to bear unthinkable powers. The situation was heavily publicized and the concept of whether or not internet addiction should be a practical and rational diagnosis began to concern folks globally.The couple was testing the pc minigame Prius, which, we learn, has attracted numerous folks to its online community thanks to its gorgeous, colourful graphics, heavy-use of individuality through pre-programmed personalities, and entirely customizable avatars. While the in-home pc is still a very large luxury in South Korea, many flock to a local gaming lounge, equipped with variety of fully-customized computers where folks pay by the hour to enjoy the recent online video games. The couple was told to have played up to ten to twelve hours at these lounges for the price of seven, thanks to pretty deals the club often boasts, and that the couple's only source of income seemed to come directly from the solicitation of stuff and details in the minigame for folks that didn't wish to go through the labor of now earning such things themselves.Love Kid says a tragic story, but one that was sooner or soon going to be told, what with the international rise of the internet and the amount of folks who center their lives around it. Veatch's exploration reminds me of the type of exploration Susan Saladoff gave to Stella Liebeck, the elderly girl who filed a lawsuit vs McDonald's after accidentally spilling the restaurant's coffee on herself gave her third degree burns, in her documentary Hot Coffee. The only difference is Saladoff worked to illustrate and correct numerous misconceptions about Liebeck and her situation that were perpetuated by folks shortchanged or rewriting the situation in their own blatantly incorrect way. Veatch's storyline about the Korean couple is as terrible as it sounds, and while the concept of internet addiction is a very plausible explanation, it still doesn't lessen the fact that a kid died of starvation in a well-off country because of primary parental neglect.Veatch occasionally veers off into a more impressionistic style, atypical of most documentaries, becoming more fascinated by video clips of Prius gameplay along with medium-length shots of random, day-to-day occurrences in South Korea (case and point, a kid flinging an umbrella around like a sword until it becomes inside out, with the boy's mother supporting him while she's talking on her cell phone). This proves distracting from Veatch's core thesis, which, instead of diving into the court situation for the South Korean parents, is focusing on another minor instances that almost seem launch for some type of metaphorical interpretation.Love Child, as a look at internet addiction and the side results of virtual dependency drawn in broadstrokes and taken in primary context, still works as a documentary, for its key purpose is achieved through the introduction of a specific example that bleeds into a larger, bigger issue, equipped with historical context on other country. Trust me when I say, however, this will not be all we hear about this subject, especially in documentary form.NOTE: Love Kid will air throughout the month of August 2014 on HBO.Directed by: Valerie Veatch.


This is the storyline of a South Korean couple who left their newborn baby unattended for hours at a time on a everyday basis while they played online minigames in an internet parlor. This is a storyline which is worth learning about.The movie, however, is poorly edited. There is lengthy boring footage of video games, and worse, meandering, meaningless sequences of random folks doing irrelevant things, none of which are germane to the story.Still worth watching as an necessary cautionary tale. This legal situation has made history due to it being the first of its kind--internet addiction now causing a fatality. Laws have been passed and fresh ways devised for dealing with this relatively newest form of addiction.Another criticism I have is that "internet addiction" gotta surely be a secondary diagnosis to a more serious problem. I want this had been addressed more fully.


If I said you that a married couple allow their baby die because they were too busy testing video minigames to remember she was even there, what would your reaction be? Well, sadly this is a real case, and that is what Love Kid is about, a Korean couple who became addicted to testing a complex online minigame involving taking care of a fairy baby that gains magical powers as it grows up.Love Kid does not test to create the couple look bad, in fact it shows pity for them more than anything else. Korea is surrounded by technology and anime gaming online, looking related to the town of Neo-Tokyo on the 1988 anime film Akira. Minigames are complex with nice graphics and exciting plots. I'm sure we can all agree, although I'm not much of a gamer, that in moderation the internet is a helpful and fun software to discover and communicate with the world. So how did it become a creature that drew a young couple away from their own baby to take care of a virtual one? Love Kid explains exactly this, using clips from the online games, clips of Korea's complex technological atmosphere, news broadcasts about the death of the baby and clips of the court trial. It also declares that internet addiction is becoming more of a realized trouble than an idea, even being considered a mental health trouble like drugs or booze.There may possibly be many more situations like this one, but Love Kid has documented the first. At times the internet café clips got a bit boring but the movie was shocking and eye-opening, and terrifying to even consider that parents should allow their baby die over a stupid game. The movie was dedicated to the baby, whose name was 'Love' in Korean.
