There are reports that many large corporations in South Korea have either given May 2nd, 2008, as a day off, or encouraged their workers to take a day of leave on that day, with the result that one can expect most banks, government services and large corporations to be hard to reach from May 1st to May 5th, 2008, inclusively.
However, most department and discount stores are expected to remain open on May 2nd, and most small and medium-sized businesses are expected to work normally on both May 1st and 2nd.
