Smoke-free dining


A sign reads “No smoking” at a restaurant in Seoul yesterday. The policy that bans smoking inside public facilities larger than 150 square meters (1,615 square feet) and without separate smoking sections including restaurants, coffee shops and government office buildings went into effect on Saturday. Individual violators are subject to a fine of 100,000 won ($92), and shops and building owners are subject to a maximum fine of 5 million won if they allow smoking. [YONHAP]
