I think you are probably on a system where timezones can be given
only with a more modern and unambiguous style and not in the
potentially ambiguous abbreviated form. Here is one experiment to
show what I mean:
$ TZ=KST date
Tue Apr 2 00:29:51 KST 2019
$ TZ=JST date
Tue Apr 2 00:29:51 JST 2019
$ TZ=Asia/Tokyo date
Tue Apr 2 09:29:51 JST 2019
Two points to be learned from the above exercise are:
- It is not limited to your copy of "git". Even a system supplied
command like "date" does not work with "JST" but it can grok
Asia/Tokyo just fine ("JST" does not necessarily have to be
"Japan standard time"; it could be Jamaican ;-)).
- It is not limited to KST (is that Kabul standard time? Khartoum?
Perhaps try TZ=Asia/Seoul or something?
