Korean Tokens to Display Days and Months of the Lunar Calendar

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

The basic tokens that can be used to display dates of the Korean Lunar Calendar in Korean are:

 

[krd]

Shows the lunar day, without the Korean character for day.

[krdd]

Shows the lunar day, with the Korean character for day.

[krm]

Shows the lunar day, without the Korean character for month.

[krmm]

Shows the lunar day, with the Korean character for month.

[krMM]

Shows the lunar day, with the Korean character for month, and with the character that denotes if a month is short or long (ie. it contains 29 or 30 days).

[krYYYY]

Displays the Korean lunar year using Korean Hangul characters.

 

In all the above, the prefix "s" can be used to conditionally show the Korean day or month tokens, on the first day of the month or in the first month of the year, respectively.

 

The following tokens allow for the replacement of lunar dates with solar terms, when these occur (once every 15 days on average, around the 6th and the 20th of each month):

 

[krdm]

Shows the lunar month, without the Korean character for month, on the first of any lunar month.

[krdmm]

Shows the lunar month, with the Korean character for month, on the first of any lunar month.

[krdsm]

Shows the Korean solar term, and the lunar month, without the Korean character for month, on the first of any lunar month.

[krdsmm]

Shows the solar term, and the lunar month, with the Korean character for month, on the first of any lunar month.

[krds]

Shows the lunar day but that is replaced by the solar term when these occur (this is analogous to the :chls minicalendar modifier).

 

Finally, the following tokens can be used to display dates of the Korean lunar calendar, using western characters:

 

[kr_D]

Shows the lunar day, using one or two digits, using western numbers.

[kr_DD]

Shows the lunar day, always using two digits, using western numbers.

[kr_M]

Shows the lunar month, using one or two digits, using western numbers.

[kr_MM]

Shows the lunar month, always using two digits, using western numbers.

[kr_YYYY]

Displays the Korean year using western characters.
