And you think you have boomer fatigue

According to, a Korean newspaper Web site, Korea's second-generation baby boomers (ages 26 to 29, born between 1979 and 1982) have begun having children of their own, raising the nation's birth rate for a second consecutive year and creating a third baby-boom generation.

The second-generation boomers are the children of Korea's first baby boomers, who were born between 1954 and 1962, immediately after the close of the Korean War. The second-generation boomers outnumber those in other age groups by about 100,000. Accordingly, the number of newborns should continue to increase over the next two to three years.
