in South Korea means South Koreans will be a year or two
. The law was passed last Thursday. Before it was passed, there were three
ways that people could tell their age. South Koreans could have three ages. One was an "
age". This is the same as how most people in the world calculate their age. A baby is
at birth and becomes one year old a year after it is born. The
was a "Korean age". Under this system,
are considered a year old on the
they are born, and then a year is added every January the 1st. The third method was a "
age". This makes babies zero years old at birth, and a year is added to their
every January the 1st.
