Korean Age I'm still confused with Korean age. When Koreans are born they are already 1 years old right? And when It's new year, Add another 1 to the age again? But on their birthday during that year, they won't add anymore? For example, I am 17 and then it's new year then I'll be 18? But during my birthday, I'm still 18? Is that correct? What if they were born on new year? Does that makes them 2 years old already?

It doesn't matter if it passes or not. Korean age is calculated by year (not by birthdays) :) A baby born in 1.1 is 1 yeas old , I think ~ baby born in 12.31 would be 2 years old in the new years day :)
