Random information on the term “AGE”:
Countries in the East Asian cultural sphere (China, Korea, Japan, Vietnam and their diaspora) have traditionally used specific methods of determining a person’s age. Today, these methods see only limited use in certain contexts and areas, mainly in South Korea and Taiwan.
In China, where the system originated millennia ago, people are considered to be one year old at birth (one sui 嵗/岁), and on New Year’s Day of the lunar calendar, another year is added. That is, age is counted with ordinal numbers, not cardinal numbers; also, age is counted from the lunar new year, not from the date of birth.
South Koreans also use “year age”, determined by the birth year and the current year. Eastern Mongolia has a different system for measuring a person’s age, which is based on the number of lunar cycles that have passed since birth (for boys; girls are measured from conception).
Currently in China and in Chinese societies around the world, the term sui when used all by itself can be ambiguous. In most contexts, such as the age on legal documents, it is equivalent to the English “years old.” Thus, in China, where the legal age of alcohol consumption is 18 sui, one is not legally permitted to drink alcohol until after their 18th birthday. However, in some contexts, such as in determining age for fortune-telling purposes, or in reading pre-modern texts, one must distinguish between the traditional way of calculating age and the modern way adopted from the West.
