Did you know that you're a different age in Korea than in other countries? This Korean age calculator helps you to know your Korean Age just by entering your birth year.

#### Formula:

Korean Age = ( Current Year - Birth Year ) +1

In Korea, age is calculated in a different way than any other countries. Here the gestational period of the baby is taken into consideration. Hence, when a baby is born, it is 1 year old. Also, they calculate it with the completion of calendar years. Hence a person has completed one year at the end of the calendar year. In Korea, everyone is 1 from the time they are born. And everyone gets a year older on New Year’s day. So your Korean age is always either one or two years older than your Western age.

Suppose, if you were born in 1985, your age in other countries would be 32 but in Korea you are 34 years old. Calculate your age in Korea using this Korean Age Calculator.

Thus, if a person has born in december month, he / she completes one year when born and on January 1, he / she will be 2 years old. This online korean age calculator is used to find how old you are in korea. Enter your birth year and your korean age will be displayed.

### Example

If you were actually born in 17th of May, 1992 and current year is 2015, then
Korean Age = (2015 - 1992) + 1
= 23 + 1
= 24 years old.
