Following today's cabinet meeting, the South Korean ruling Minjoo Party has announced that it would not declare Parent’s Day as a new annual non-working public holiday in South Korea.

Today's announcement follows a statement, earlier this week (2018-04-10), by South Korean ruling Democratic Party chief policy maker, Kim Tae-Nyeon, that the South Korean government was considering declaring Parent’s Day, on May 8, a new annual non-working public holiday in South Korea, as per a promise made by President Moon Jae-in during his last electoral campaign, when he had promised to designate Parent’s Day as a non-working public holiday in South Korea.
