Parents' Day ?[edit]

Can someone confirm that May 8 is Parents' Day in South Korea, please ? I found the wikiarticle, but the holiday isn't listed here. I wonder why. Thanks. -- PFHLai 09:18, 9 May 2006 (UTC)

It is ... however it is not a public holiday, which is probably why it isn't listed here. Here is a little piece from the Korea Times about Parents' Day (the article confusingly appears to state that P-Day is the 7th, which it is not). -- Visviva 09:37, 9 May 2006 (UTC)
Thank you for the confirmation. -- PFHLai 05:35, 10 May 2006 (UTC)

August 15: Liberation Day ?[edit]

Should August 15 be Independence Day or Liberation Day ? Liberation Day makes more sense to me. -- PFHLai 18:06, 16 August 2006 (UTC)

釋迦誕辰日[edit]

Shouldn't "釋迦誕辰日" on this page really be "釋迦님誕辰日"? (Stefan2 23:52, 22 August 2006 (UTC))

No, becuase "釋迦誕辰日" are not the Chinese characters for "부처(님) 오신날" rather, they are the characters for the Korean phrase, "석가 탄신일". dandan xD 22:05, 19 November 2006 (KST)

추석 / Chusok[edit]

Does anyone else have a problem with translating 추석 as "Thanksgiving Day"? Aside from the fact that they are both harvest festivals in which people eat a lot of food, I don't see that many similarities... Unknown User

They give thanks to their ancestors for giving them a good harvest- that's why the holiday is called "Thanksgiving Day". dandan xD 22:08, 18 November 2006, (KST)
Harvest festival would be more accurate. Thanksgiving is very american.61.110.87.147 (talk) 11:30, 21 September 2015 (UTC)

ABOUT PUTTING THE PERCENTAGE OF RELIGIOUS AFFILIATION IN SOUTH KOREA.[edit]

THE 2008 STATISTICS ABOUT THE PERCENTAGE OF RELIGIOUS ADHERENTS IN SOUTH KOREA MUST HAVE CREDIBLE CITATIONS, IT WILL CREATE MISUNDERSTANDING IN THE NEAR FUTURE. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 121.54.68.114 (talk) 02:18, 2 May 2009 (UTC)

When explaining Buddha's Birthday, it says 'According to 2008 statistics, 63% of South Koreans are Buddhists.' This sounds very unlikely. First of all, there is no citation. Secondly, Chritianity is likey to have more believers in the Republic of Korea. I would appreciate it if the person who wrote this part could cite his source or correct the false information in case it was not right.130.83.244.131 (talk) 20:23, 13 September 2009 (UTC)

June 15: Farmers' Day[edit]

Shouldn't there be one?--Ukas (talk) 04:09, 17 June 2009 (UTC)

Labour Day/Workers' Day[edit]

International Workers' Day#Asia says Workers' Day/Labour day is a "paid holiday" in South Korea, but the source it links to is in Korean. I'm not sure where, if anywhere, it fits in this article but it would be good to add. (Alternatively some clarification in the other article. For example, does it simply add a day for annual leave entitlement?) This article could also use some work as I'm not sure whether "Public Days Off" are the same thing as public holidays. Nil Einne (talk) 01:56, 1 May 2017 (UTC)

May 1 was designated as Labor Day (근로자의 날, "Laborers' Day") on January 27, 2016 by Korean labor laws t require employers (not government services) to give paid holidays (or pay 50% more allowance) to the workers.
