Pro Gaming in South Korea isn't all bad.

On the minus side, being a pro-gamer is a lot like joining a cult:
“The standard in pro gaming groups is for people to live together 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, with no traveling to or from work, and for those ranked Group 2 or lower, their entire daily routine consists of eating, cleaning, laundry and games,” said Kim Jeong-geun. “Because of this structure of bringing in young people, developing them and then replacing them when their lifespan is spent and they have been squeezed dry, it has earned the name of ‘the chicken coop.’”
On the plus side, you're probably not being exploited for sex if you're a member of a geek cult.
