What is “Korean Age”?

When the foreigners talk about their ages in Korea, they always said “I’m OO, and My Korean age is XX”.

Did you know that there’s difference between Korean Age and general Age? What’s That exactly!? There are General(international) Age System(which is also called “Mann” in Korea as you can see in the video) and Korean Age system.


I’m 17 years old in international age, but 19 years old in Korean age.

    I always had a lot of difficulties to explain Korean age system to foreigner:D
