According to Chinese Folklore the Golden year of the Pig occurs once in every 600 years and will ensure that a baby born on this year will experience a prosperous and wealthy life.
Chinese folklorists and historians doubt this belief.
... folklore professor, Joo Young-ha, at the Academy of Korean Studies rebuts the theory. He explained that if the year 2007 is the golden pig year which comes every 600 years, there should be records about the special year written in the ‘Taejong Sillok,’ archives of King Taejong. King Taejong ruled the Joseon Dynasty 600 years ago. But there are no such records, which makes him believe the myth was made not long ago.
