Gamers affected by the change will receive a free PlayStation Plus subscription for a month. However, only gamers age 18 and above can only access the online store.

Previously, the service was halted on June 29 last year due to the then new rulings of South Korea's Shutdown Law. The law was created in 2011 to prohibit gamers under 16-years-old from playing games during a six-hour lockdown from midnight until 6:00am.
