What is my Korean age?

Your Korean age is calculated by using any of the formulas below:
1. Current year + 1 - Birth year = Korean age
2. Your age + 1 = Korean age
3. Simply use our calculator!
Let's say that you're 23 years old and want to calculate your Korean age manually; it will be 23 + 1, which is 24. So, your Korean age is 24.
Let's try a second example; if someone was born In 1980 and they want to calculate their age in Korea in the year 2012, they proceed as so:
2012 + 1 - 1980 = 33 years old in Korea

Why is the Korean age different from the western age?

Westerns consider a newborn baby to be zero years old, but this is not the case in Korea as newborns are considered one year old. So this makes a one-year-old baby in Korea different from a one-year-old baby in western culture.
Another interesting fact about Korean culture is the time of the year you increase your age. In Korea, you increase your age count on the first day of the of every year (January 1st), not on your birthday. Birthdays are still celebrated in Korea, but they don't signify the day that your age increases. So the time so spent in the womb counts as the first year of your life, even though it was only 9 months.
Even though the Korean age is different from the usual age standards, it is still just a cultural matter and is not used in their passports or birth certificate.

What is my international age?

International age is the legal age used in Korea. It is the age used in certificates, passports, and education documents, the same as the western age.

Why is the Korean age important?

Koreans pay particular attention to cultural matters and value them. The Korean age is a cultural matter, so it comes at no surprise that knowing your Korean age is important in Korea.

Why is age important in Korea?

As we discussed, knowing your Korean age is essential in Korea. Other than that, age is just generally crucial in Korea. Native Koreans will usually ask your age when initially meeting you for the first time. This is not just to see if you are of age or can drink alcohol; the reasoning for this is that there are different ways of addressing someone in Korean. So, for the natives to figure out how to address you, i.e., according to which formality, they will ask for your age.

How to say your age in Korean?

A Korean might use any of the questions below to to ask you "How old are you?":
Polite: 나이가 어떻게 돼요? (naiga eotteoke doeyo?)
Formal: 연세가 어떻게 되세요? (yeonsega eotteoke doeseyo?)
Informal: 몇 살이야? (meot sariya?)
When you want to say "I am \_\_ years old.", you will use either one of the statements below that mean "to be". Your age comes before the verb.
Polite: —— _이에요. (_ —— ieyo.)
Formal: —— 입니다. (\_\_\_ imnida.)
Informal: **_이야. (_** iya.)
