Koreans figure age differently. My western age is now 30. My Korean age now is 31 and has been since January 1, 2004. In Korea, you are one year when you born. Koreans add a year on January first regardless of when their birthday is, so I'll be 32 in a couple weeks.When I was 3 weeks old, I was 2 years old. It's wacky.
Oh, and Korean women are pregnant for 10 months, not nine. Mee, don't explain that right away...it'll be fun to see the guesses on why that is.

ok is it this: doctors do not think of pregnancy in months, but rather in weeks. We use weeks because it's a precise measurement -- every week is seven days long, but months can vary (February, with 28 days, is the only true four- week month!). If every month were exactly four weeks long, then pregnancy would indeed last 10 months, but that's not how it works on the calendar.
