The date of cancellation of the night curfew
The curfew, which began on September 8, 1945 under the U.S. Military Government's decree No. 1 and was enforced for 36 years and four months until its abolition on January 5, 1982, was called a total ban on people's passage from midnight every night until 4 a.m. the following day, and was also called curfew and night labor.

At first, it was only implemented in Seoul and Incheon, but after the Korean War, it expanded nationwide from April 1954 and was banned from night traffic from 10 p.m. to 4 a.m.

In 1961, curfews were reduced from 12 p.m. to 4 a.m., Jeju in 1964 and Chungbuk in 1965 were excluded from the curfew, but the curfew was maintained until 1982.
