Hangul Day a national holiday again
If the plan is approved, Koreans will have 15 legal holidays from next year. Hangul Proclamation Day occurs on Oct. 9. After the plan was announced by the ministry, October of 2017 attracted Korea’s attention on Internet. Because Sept. 30 is on a Saturday and the three-day Chuseok holiday season comes on Oct. 3 (Tuesday), people can take about a weeklong vacation if they take a day off on Oct. 1.
If they want more vacation, they can expand it until Oct. 9 (Monday) if they take another day off on Oct. 6 (Friday).
