1.1. Job resumes / 이력서

When I was searching for surname history (which has fruitful info found, btw), I found a collection of about 30 resumes at [http]

  1. Do formal resumes in print include Hanja category headings, like 貫, 學, 賞, etc.
    • Not to my knowledge. We Koreans normally do not include Hjanja category headings you've list above in one's formal resume. The collection looked quite old and it's outdated.

  2. Do young people still say 貫 on their resume? Because in Canada, even though most of us take pride in our origins, we are not supposed to reveal our ancestry, or even birthplace, as these info might attract subconscious or conscious prejudice.

  • I'm not quite sure which origins you're referring to. If 貫 in your question is referring to birth place, I would think revealing one's birth place is quite common even to the Western culture. If 貫 in your question is referring to ancestry, the answer go back to the first one that these resumes are too old and it has become outdated. What I can tell you from these resumes is that Korean people older than 50 would put those 貫 name on his / her resume with great pride in the past. Not true anymore. -- 김민수

1.2. Holidays / 휴일

(From WikiPedia:South_Korea)

  1. When are the Korean Mother's and Father's Days?
    1. Is Mother's Day on the 2nd Sunday of May?
    2. Is Father's Day on August 8?
  2. Beside Mother's Day and holidays based on the WikiPedia:lunar_calendar, like 설날, 추석, and 부처님오신날, are there other Korean holidays which are WikiPedia:moveable_feast?
  3. Is Christmas a national holiday of Korea? I think almost all countries that celebrate it have a long Christian history (i.e., the kings/queens are Christians), but Korea isn't a Christian nation, despite famous people like WikiPedia:Seok-heon_Ham and WikiPedia:Sun_Myung_Moon.

  1. We have Parents' Day in South Korea, on May 8th.
  2. There is 정월正月 대보름大full-moon(1.15), 삼짇날(3.3), 단오端午(5.5), 칠석七夕(7.7), 백중白中(7.15), 중양절重陽節(9.9) and lot more in Lunar calendar. They were holidays but being forgotten from Koreans. Most common are 대보름, 단오, and 칠석. 한식寒食 is 105th day from 동지冬至, originated by the story of 개자추介子推 in 진晉 dynasty of China.
There are three 복날(伏-days) in summer. Third 경일庚日 (as in 일진日辰) from 하지夏至 is 초복初伏, Forth 경일 is 중복中伏, First 경일 from 입추立秋 is 말복末伏. Around these 삼복三伏 are known to be hottest days in the year. In these days Koreans have custom eating 삼계탕蔘鷄湯 and 구탕狗湯.
  1. Yes, Christmas is a national holiday. Sure Christian history in Korea is short, but Quakers and Unification Church are minority.
I don't know about the other countries' cases, but I think significant portion of our population is Christian, and 부처님오신날, the birthday of Budha, is a national holiday as well. Therefore, I don't think it is way strange or unfair to have Christmas as our national holiday. Personally, I don't like Christmas as a holiday. It seem like that it is rather just a big shopping season than divine holiday. Ah, 부처님오신날 is not a big shopping time. :-> --이지수
