The South Korean Ministry of Public Administration and Security, basing itself on data from the Korea Astronomy and Space Science Institute announced the official dates of 2022 South Korean annual non-working public holidays, including those that are based on the Korean lunar calendar, and those 2022 South Korean public holidays which fall on a Sunday.
The announced the official dates of 2022 South Korean annual non-working public holidays follow the "Substitute Holiday Bill", passed 8 years ago (2013-05-03), which automatically declares a one-off day in lieu non-working public holiday on the Mondays which follow an annual non-working public holiday falling on a Sunday.
These changes were initially limited to the South Korean public sector, and do not provide for a day in lieu for public holidays that fall on a Saturday, even though Saturdays are officially non-working days since July 2005 (2005-06-21).
