ついに「韓国式」年齢が廃止へ!「満年齢」に統一され最大2歳若返る?! 韓国の複雑な”3つの年齢”を1分で解説!国民への影響は?

Korea is said to be a society that values ​​age in particular!

The age count is unique, and when you go to Korea or talk about your age with your friends, you may be older than Japan and have experienced confusion.

But recentlyIn Korea, how to count age is changing to world standards, and it is now a hot topic (° _ °)

This time, complicatedEliminate Korean age circumstancesExplains what changes will occur in Korea in the futureI will like to try♪

1. "How old are you in Korea?" Explain how to count on Korea's current age!


 Quote source

In Korea next door, unlike Japan, the current age is all about how much.ThreeIt is said that there is also!

Let's take a look at what differences each are♪

① ① 이 (Senunnai, Korean style)


Quote source

When asked about the age of the age that is most commonly used in Korea, everyone will answer at this age!​​

In Japan and even now, it is a count that is still used as a "counting year"

Based on the idea that "life has been raised since I was in my mother's stomach"

The moment of birth is considered one year old.​​

  • When I was born → 1 year old
  • New Year (January 1st) → + 1 year old


How old are you in Korea now?  

☆If this year's birthday is not+2 years old for the current agedo

 (Example) The age of "now" is 20 years old → Currently 22 years old in Korea

 "Now" 18 years old → 20 years old in Korea, so it is already considered an adult!

☆If you are already welcoming this year's birthday, at that age+1 years old


② 만 나 (Mannai)

 Quote source

this isHow to count the same as JapanSo, so -called"Full age"I am referring to.

Infants under 1 year old are counted as ◯ months

How to count in tax, medical care, welfare, etc.♪

  • When I was born → 0 years old
  • Birthday → + 1 year old


③ 연 (Yon Nai)

Quote source

This is how old you will be this year.

This yearfromBorn yearIf you draw, you can easily calculate!

In today's Korea, the age of enlisting, the age of buying alcohol and cigarettes,The age of entering elementary and junior high schools, etc.

It seems to be used to unify♪

  • When I was born → 0 years old
  • New Year (January 1st) → + 1 year old


In this way, in Korean society, three ages are sometimes and in some cases.It is said that you use it properly!

It feels difficult just to know how to count the age, but when you use it properly

It's very complicated> <

Therefore, in Korea, in order to avoid confusion by age,

Especially complicatedEliminate the age system of "Korean style" (how to count in ① above) and "See how to count

I want you to fix it. "​​​​

          This is in KoreaThe tendency that emphasizes ageIt can be said that it is a problem that comes up because of the existence.

          In Japan, I don't think that my classmates who celebrated their birthday earlier are "older"!

          However, in Korea, almost everyday friends are almost always "OnniOppa""

          Despite being a classmate, be aware of the ageIsn't the calling apart?

          There is concern about the problem!

          It seems to be a nice news for Koreans who have counted more age than in other countries,
