    Not trying to cause drama, just providing the info I have. In Korea they add a year to age, right? So 1999 would be counted as 4 years older than 2002 with that in mind. This is the article for the album tyun was talking about: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/First_Love_(Hikaru_Utada_album)
    These are the twitter translations for tyun’s weverse post: https://twitter.com/304verse/status/1459527105868288004?s=21 https://twitter.com/translatingtxt/status/1459527237284376581?s=21

      Korean Age in 2022:
      1998: 25
      1999: 24
      2000: 23
      2001: 22
      2002: 21
      4 years older than 21 (2002): 25 (1998)

      He said that album (released on March 10, 1999) came out few days before his sister’s birthday (=1999), but he also said his sister is 4 years older than he is (=1998). His namu.wiki page and some MOAs on online communities like theqoo say his sister was born in 1998 🤯 .
      One possible scenario: his sister is bbareun 99, which means she was born in 1999, but went to school with the children born in 1998.

        That is very insightful! I appreciate the clarification 🙂

    Taehyun’s noona was born in 1999, not 1998.

      Where did you get that info from?? Didn’t he say his sister is 4 years older than him?

        In November Taehyun was talking about a CD that was released in 1999 and said that the CD was released a few days before his sister came into the world. Making her born in 1999. I can’t find the post but it was on Weverse.

          Couldn’t find that Weverse post but he said his sister is 4 years older than he is.
