The Korean Astronomy and Space Science Institute has announced the official dates of the 2011 South Korean public holidays that are based on the Korean lunar calendar.
As per custom (06-Dec-2009), the Institute's announcement, specifies the dates of Seol-nal (Lunar New Year), Sukka Tansin Il (Buddha Day), and Chusok (the Harvest Moon Festival).
The bill that would make the Monday following a weekend public holiday, a public holiday as well (10-Jul-2009), does not seem to have progressed since last year, although Prime Minister, Chung Un-Chan, had indicated that he favored the idea.
Note that some of the media reports about the aforementioned announcement have incorrect dates for the 2011 Chusok public holidays.
