According to film observers, the law has been implemented by theaters, but the age category information displayed on plasma TVs is so small that not all viewers pay attention to the information. The Film Censorship Board does not specifically have the right to revise this law, from LSF's perspective, this is sufficient because everything has been regulated in detail.
