How old are you? Simple question you know the answer to, right? Well in Korea the answer you would ordinarily give here in the West would not be entirely correct! (≧∇≦)/

For the full article click HERE!

Try out the calculator on the article page and tell us all about it here! Or, if you are still wondering more about this, feel free to ask below and we will gladly help you figure out the Korean age system! (ノ´ヮ´)ノ*:・゚✧

For example, my age here in the UK is recorded as 26 currently, but in Korea I am 28! Yes, I am an old fogey, lol xD But how can this be? Well, I was born at the END of October, and so at the time of writing this, my birthday hasn't passed yet, so I am still 26. But if you count the number of years I have seen in my lifetime it comes to 28! So that is how my age is measured in Korea - by the number of years my life has spanned!
