In South Korea, your age *very* is important. At the same time, there's also a difference between your age right now to how old you are in SoKor. It's not calculated when you celebrate your birthday but the change is only counted when it's January 1. In short, you will always be one year older in Korean age

If you have noticed in K-dramas, their culture is rooted in how old they are and this is seen in their interaction with others. For example, there's a specific way on how you should drink alcohol in front of your sunbae (senior). You should also not call someone older just by their name and must attach eonnieoppanoona, or hyung all the time. That's why when you're mingling with Koreans, it's best to know who's the oldest in the group.

For some Korean celebrities, they can call their fellow stars as chingu (friend) since they're of the same age, Wonder who they are? Here are some of your fave Korean actors and actresses who were born in the same year:
