The Korean Astronomy and Space Science Institute (KASI) has announced the official dates of the 2013 South Korean public holidays, and particular those that are based on the Korean lunar calendar.
Contrary to the announcements of last year (03-Mar-2011), the aforementioned announcement does not include the dates of any elections, but it does reflect last month's announcement (07-Nov-2012) by South Korea's Ministry of Public Administration and Security, that Hangeul Day, on October 9, would be restored as a non-working public holiday, beginning in 2013.
Seven years ago (14-Sep-2005), South Korea's KASI had already announced that, in 2012, both extended South Korean public holidays, Chuseok and the Lunar New Year, would fall on a weekend, an issue that is still being hotly debated (20-Jun-2011).
