    Korean age system is some bull that not even their own citizens understand.

    The end.

    If you are 18 in korean age you are 16-17 years old in international age.

    If you are 18 in international age you are 19-20 years old in korean age.

    I think the international age is best to go with?

    i go by international age. if you are 18 internationally you are legal.

    (being that 18 year olds in korea are actually 16/17 years old internationally- i would consider them a minor still)

    Maybe just don't sexualize them at all. I know its a novel idea.

    If idols are minors in their own country, I don't think you should sexualise them since they still consider themselves a minor.

    If they're a minor in their own country, they're a minor.

    Officially, it's only a year extra so it's (+1 for whatevs their International age is) . Koreans just like to count another extra for the Lunar New Year so they can be older in terms of respect and hierarchy so they can one up their friends even though they are the same year, but difference in months. Paperwork-wise and legality tho, it's only a year...
