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

The new law simplifies age South Korea. Lawmakers hope it will end confusion how old people are. June 2023, all official documents must use the standard international age. It will be used the legal ages drinking, getting married, smoking, and military service. It should help to end legal and social problems caused the old system. However, many people will continue to use the Korean age informal situations. A Korean Twitter user was relieved there is a new law to make things simpler. She tweeted: "I'll become two years younger. I'm so happy. I turned two years old two weeks I was born, as I was born December. Finally, I'm to get my real age back."
