South Korea Confirms 2010 Sunday Public Holidays

Source: Chosun (Seoul)
Posted: Thursday, February 5, 2009

South Korea's Astronomy and Space Science Institute confirmed the 2010 dates for the Seol-Nal (lunar New Year) and Chuseok (harvest festival) public holidays, with Seol-Nal falling on a Sunday.

This means that in 2010, as is the case in 2009, 4 of South Korea's public holidays will be "lost" as they fall on Sundays, unless a recently introduced bill (2008-12-09) is passed, giving South Koreans a Monday day in lieu when an official public holiday falls on a Sunday.
