Minecraft now R-rated in South Korea

You have to logon using an Xbox one logon and that means you have to be at least 18 to play the game in SK now.

The migration started off as a voluntary thing, but then in March, an additional warning popped up specifically for South Korea informing that anyone looking to buy the game would need to be at least 19 years old. So while the game currently sits at a 12+ age rating through the country's Games Rating and Administration Committee, the mandatory Xbox Live sign-in bumps that straight up to an 18+ rating.

its due to a law that has been around 10 years but not enforced until now
The bizarre restriction comes down to the country's "Cinderella law," which pulls the plug on any child or teen hoping to play games with their mates into the early hours of the morning. The law's been in place since 2011 and means anyone under the age of 16 is prohibited from playing online videogames between midnight and 6 AM

"The [law] finally stretched out to Minecraft, which is regarded as the epitome of educational and creative games," a machine translation of the petition reads. "Korea will become [the only game market] where even Minecraft is reduced to an adult game."
