Across the continent of Asia, different jurisdictions have different minimum ages for consent to sexual behavior. Other pertinent elements include the particular activity being performed or the gender of the participants.

What Is The Age Of Consent In South Korea?

In South Korea, having sex with someone under the age of 16, an international age, not “Korean age” is regarded as statutory rape, unless the other person involved is also under the age of 19.

Under no circumstances is sexual activity with a kid under the age of 16 not deemed statutory rape. Prior to 2020, South Korea’s legal consent age was 13, as determined by colonial-era Japan.

Additionally, the idea that it’s just thirteen years old sounds completely preposterous given the appalling state of sex education in Korea, which is a direct result of a society that is hesitant to acknowledge that teenagers have sex or even sexuality.

The real age of consent in South Korea is 20 years old.
