[theqoo/teens stories] KOREAN AGE THAT GIVES YOU 1 YEAR AS SOON AS YOU’RE BORN, MOVE TOWARDS ‘INTERNATIONAL AGE’

 

With the election of Yoon Seok-yeol in the 20th presidential election, attention is focused on whether the ‘international age calculation method’ will be implemented as promised.
In a short video pledge during his candidacy, President-elect Yoon Seok-yeol promised to unify the legal age calculation method based on the global age, rather than using the Korean age.
Accordingly, under the Yoon Seok-yeol administration, the age of all citizens is expected to be at most two years younger.

Anyways, your international age has always been your real age and that’s what they use anywhere else in the world so please implement this

Even in Korea, I’m not sure if we’re fully using the Korean age… Hospital uses international age, for your adult certification, you need to be 18 y.o by international age, etc. Aside from when you’re introducing yourself, people use international age way more so I hope we change it

I hope we change it fast. We might be confused at first but even so, Korea is so sensitive about age so I think that becoming 1-2 years younger won’t hurt… In conclusion, please change it before my birthday comes ㅜ

It’s crazy how someone is already 2 y.o if they are born in November or December

Then, I think that we should also get rid of nicknames like “unnie, nuna, oppa, hyung”… We should do it like Japan and only use those within the family. But implementing this won’t be easy

It’s f*cking weird even for foreigners (honestly, everyone finds it weird except our country). They ask “how do you count your age? If you’re a 02-liner, how come you’re 21 y.o?” They are also shocked at the fact that people with big age gaps can’t be friends
