"Historically, Buddhism has always been based on the principles of harmony and agreement and it is these qualities which created the necessary circumstances for Buddhism to cease being a foreign teaching and become truly Korean. Later on, Buddhism served not only as a religion but also as a culture, philosophy and spiritual pivot point around which to sublimate all the joys and sorrows of life."

Kim Young-Tae
(Buddhist scholar)
Age, Birthdays, and You

When Koreans are born, they are said to be one year old and the age is increased not on birthdays, but on New Year's Day. Thus the difference between Korean age and Western age is 2 years until one's birthday. Then the difference is one year.
