Korea’s Public Holidays in 2023
A total of 116 days, including weekends and substitute holidays.
There is a chance that the Buddha’s Day and Christmas will have a substitute holiday. It is currently under discussion within the government.
When national holidays fall on weekends, alternative/substitute holidays can be designated on the next weekday.
For example, Lunar New Year is celebrated for three days in Korea. The day before Lunar New Year, Lunar New Year, and the day after Lunar New Year.
In 2023, because Lunar New Year falls on Sunday, January 24 has been assigned as a substitute holiday.
