No-Kids Zones in Country With World’s Lowest Birthrate
only time will tell: we have to wait to find out how or what will happen in the future, because it’s uncertain now
South Korea is a country fighting a battle with the world’s lowest birthrate. This low birthrate has people debating something you might not expect – “No-kids zones.”
Nearly 80 of these “No-kids zones” exist on the vacation island of Jeju alone. In places such as cafes and restaurants, these zones give adults a break from kids. But is a break from children what Korea needs?
The birthrate in South Korea dropped to a record low of 0.78 last year. A rate of 2.1 is needed for a stable population. It’s even lower than in Japan, which is known as the world’s “grayest” nation, with a rate of 1.3.
Lawmaker Yong Hye-in is leading a fight against these zones. She wants to make sure children are included in society. Will she succeed? Only time will tell.

3. Will AI replace human doctors one day? Only time will tell.
