A Temporary Public Holiday has been declared to bridge Chuseok to National Foundation Day.

Monday October 2nd 2023

President of South Korea, Yoon Suk Yeol, has designated Monday October 2nd 2023 as a temporary holiday to extend the upcoming Chuseok holiday to a six-day break.

"Oct. 2 will be designated as a temporary public holiday," Yoon said in a meeting on the economy and people's livelihood at the presidential office, calling to boost domestic tourism and lower prices ahead of Chuseok.

This year's three-day Chuseok holiday lasts from Thursday September 28th, to Saturday September 30th. October 2nd is a Monday, followed by the National Foundation Day on Tuesday October 3rd.

By designating October 2nd as a temporary holiday, people will be able to enjoy an uninterrupted six-day break from September 28th to October 3rd.

In the run-up to the decision, the People Power Party (PPP) asked the government to make Oct. 2 a temporary holiday to help stimulate the domestic economy.
