Presidential spokesperson Kim Eui-gyeom said yesterday that President Moon Jae In has decided not to set Parents Day as a temporary holiday this year.

The spokesperson added “the fact that many kindergartens and elementary schools are closed for the day has affected the decision at large.”

The spokesperson explained that the office was concerned due to parents’ burden on taking care of their children while still having to go to work.

President Moon had initially made the pledge to make the day a temporary holiday so people could celebrate with their parents.
