Hold on to your birthday candles, because South Koreans are experiencing a time warp that’s making them feel younger and cheekier than ever! With new laws in place, the country has bid farewell to its traditional age-counting system and embraced the international standard. That’s right, folks. Say goodbye to adding a year on every January 1st and hello to the glorious feeling of gaining extra time. So, if you were about to hit the big 3-0, fret not! You’ve just earned some bonus years, and who doesn’t love feeling like Benjamin Button in reverse? Time to celebrate and raise a glass (legally, according to the other age system) to the joy of getting younger in South Korea!
