South Korean 2025 and 2028 Public Holiday Preview

With the recent 10-day Chuseok public holidays of South Korea barely over, speculation is already rife that similar one-off bridge public holidays will be declared by the Government of South Korea, in 2025 and 2028, when a similar configuration of the Chuseok and Hanugeul public holidays of South Korea and adjoining weekends occurs.

This year (05-Sep-2017, 27-Aug-2017 and 07-Jul-2017), the Government of South Korea declared Monday, October 2, 2017, as a one-off (temporary) non-working public holiday in South Korea, to link the annual Chuseok South Korean public holiday with the preceding weekend and thus create a 10-day period of South Korean non-working public holidays and boost the economy, thus amending the list of the official dates of 2017 South Korean annual non-working public holidays, including those based on the Korean lunar calendar, and those 2017 South Korean public holidays which fall on a Sunday, as announced by the Government of South Korea, almost 2 years ago (08-Dec-2015).

Last year (28-Apr-2016), the Government of South Korea had similarly declared Friday, May 6, 2016, as a one-off (temporary) non-working public holiday in South Korea, to link the annual Orininal (Children's Day) South Korean public holiday with the subsequent weekend, and the summer before that (04-Aug-2015), the South Korean government had declared Friday, August 14, 2015, the day before the annual National Liberation Day non-working public holiday of South Korea, as a one-off ("temporary") non-working public holiday in South Korea, due to the annual Liberation Day non-working public holiday falling on a Saturday in 2015, the 70th anniversary of South Korea's liberation.

In the same vein it can be expected that Friday, October 10, 2025, might be declared a one-off public holiday in South Korea to create a non-stop period of public holidays in South Korea, from October 3-12, 2025, inclusively. Likewise, by declaring Friday, October 6, 2028, as a one-off public holiday in South Korea, a non-stop period of public holidays in South Korea, from October 3-12, 2028, inclusively, would be created.
