"Fucking waste of money"
I understand the motivation behind this, but the proliferation of cheap chips and the rise of the kitchen table chip hacker is putting paid to any particular organization attempting to control what happens to chips that anyone can buy damned near anywhere. They might find and close some small shops, but ultimately, I believe that they are only participating an expensive form of mental masturbation.
There are millions and millions of teens and 20-somethings creating demand for this item. The SK gov't is surely lacking in aggregate mental power if they have concluded that it would be possible to stop the production of the sticks in Korea, or anywhere else for that matter, or to stop their import in shirt pockets and purses, let alone bulk imports from container ships.
Korea will have less success stopping selfie sticks than any country has ever had at stopping people from smoking a weed that grows _everywhere_ except the arctic tundra and Antarctica.
Korea: Be rational, spend the money on something useful, not a meaningless crusade.
Selfie-Sticks==Drugs for narcissistic kids.
