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.

"We're discussing it with the relevant ministries", said presidential advisor Kim Jin-pyo. "Koreans have the longest working hours in the world. This plan will protect their right to rest. It'll also help boost consumption".

During an interview with "International bnt," Minzy shared her experience in 2NE1. She said that Jeon Somi reminded her with her debut days because Minzy debuted at such a young age. Also, she was really proud of Somi because she did well, AllKpopreported.

Minzy also added that she was having a hard time when 2NE1 was on hiatus since she wanted to go on stage so much. Thus, she decided to learn dance in LA. She also said that debuting at such a young age was hard since she didn't know how to socialize well. Even though she had a hard time, thankfully she could handle it really well.

The singer opened up about her 7-year history as a celebrity.  "Well before my debut, I received casting offers from a total of 60 agencies.  At that time, I was a 19-year-old student in high school and wished to debut before I graduated.  I was looking for a quick way to achieve my goals when I fell short and lost the chance to debut under a good company.  In my current agency, I made my debut with Girl's Day after training for a month.  When it gets really busy, I only get an hour of sleep at most."
