I'm 21 years old in Korea now! (19 in France).

Every Korean is one year older starting each year.

@thog @angristan IIRC, you start out at 1 year old instead of 0, and every new year you get a year older.

So if you were 19 in France, you’d be 20 in Korea, then after New Years, you’d turn 21. So after New Years but before your birthday, you’d be 2 years older by the Korean way than by the French one

@angristan i'm doing the maths and it's not clear...

unless your bday is Jan 1st
