In 1956, the State Council of South Korea designated May 8th as an annual Mother's Day. However, the question of Father's Day was discussed and on March 30th, 1973, May 8th was designated as Parents' Day under Presidential Decree 6615, or the Regulations Concerning Various Holidays (각종 기념일 등에 관한 규정).[6] When Parents' Day was first established, the entire week with the 8th day was designated to be a week to respect the elderly, but this was abolished in 1997 with October becoming the month designated for respecting the elderly.
