Gov't Mulls 10-Day Holiday in Early October

The government is considering designating Oct. 2 as a temporary holiday so that the long Chuseok break gives many people a whole 10 days off. The holiday would start on Saturday, Sept. 30 and last until Monday, Oct. 9, which is Hangul Day.

The long break was one of President Moon Jae-in's more popular campaign promises.
