The Korvia office will be closed on Thursday October 9th (KST) in observance of Hangul Day. Please note that on this day, recruiters will not be available to respond to phone calls or emails. Please make sure to contact your recruiter immediately regarding anything that needs immediate attention.

Hangul Day is one of the newest holidays to be added as an official national holiday or “red day” (as denoted in red on Korean calendars).

Hangul Day celebrates the founding of the Korean character/alphabet system during the Joseon Dynasty by King Sejeong, when he officially published the “Hunmin Jeongeum” which introduced the newly created system in 1446.

Fun Fact: South Korea celebrates the holiday every October 9th while North Korea celebrate the holiday every January 15th.
