Wouldn't it mess up a lot of things too? Such as the education system and etc? I don't even know lol
Yeah, it would, especially the hierarchy system which I mentioned in another comment,, If they were to change it, they'd probably just keep the education system the same as before but people's ages would be different? Idk either lol, this whole thing is a mess

I feel like if the age system is removed, then the hierarchy system will change, idk? Maybe this is a progressive turn to become more modern? I have no idea. It's fascinating in a way though. I wonder how it will change lol bless everyone that will be directly affected by this though

How are they going to switch to the international system, though? If they implement the change, people who were hyungs before will suddenly become 'chingus' to someone who they were once a hyung to; it would mess up the hierarchy.
I agree Korea's system is pretty confusing, and it would be better to use what everyone else in the world is using, but I don't understand how they are going to smoothly change over to a different system.
And metric yes :sanapray:
Well it probably would be difficult for everyone who is alive right now, at least for the beginning, but as a result it would make it easier for future generations so idk it seems worth it to me.
Also I feel like if they do switch over to officially using international age there will still be people, especially older ones, that still use and recognize Korean age? Its like if the official language of a country switches its not everyone who is alive suddenly learns the official labguage and uaes it, it seems like its more about how you teach the young children who pass it on and stuff.
I dont know my brains not working its too early. :yolk:

They are younger than what their korean age is, 1 to 2 years, but I'm still not sure how it exactly works.
it has to do with the lunar year. if you were born after february something or another you add one year to your international age. then at new years you add another year.

also from what i know when a baby is born it's already considered a year old?

I kind of have mixed feelings about this one. There age system can be quite confusing and it's weird when idols say they're 1-2 years older than they actually are (at least to me :welp:).

However, it's still apart of their culture. Wouldn't this confuse a lot of people anyways if they did this? Wouldn't they be against it?
