Was watching the Artosis stream and his Korean StarCraft II copy that he uses to play over there has some fairly different menus:

Korean SC2 exit menu

What is the extra stuff at the bottom of the Korean SC2 in-game menu?

I believe those are rating symbols. The first is the age rating, the second indicates violence, and the third indicates use of drugs or alcohol.

You are correct. Here's the relevant page from the South Korean Game Rating Board's website:, though the third symbol actually refers to use of drugs – Private Pansy Dec 26 '11 at 6:13
Oh, I thought it was some sort of suicide prevention thing – Nick T Dec 26 '11 at 7:05
No - it's actually pretty hard for koreans to get a hold of the game. You need to go to the shop with your citizen card and id yourself before you are allowed to buy it. Foreighners need to get a special foreign identity card that acts like that citizen-id in order to buy the game inside Korea.. – Tigraine Dec 27 '11 at 10:05
There's drugs or alcohol in SC2? Are they referring to stim packs...? The existance of a cantina in the campaign? – Adrian Petrescu Jan 19 '12 at 2:46
