Korean Date

The date today is,

4350 년 7 월 29 일 (4350, Month 7 Day 29) (19 September 2017 CE)

This is the date according to the traditional lunisolar calendar of Korea. (Note that this is not an authoritative calculation; I’m still working on the details.) The years count back to the legendary founding of Korea by 단군 왕검 (Dan-gun Wanggeom).
