So in Tae kwon do, can no one under 16 obtain a black belt?

I heard that Tae Kwon Do schools in Korea and the true ones here don't allow anyone under the age of 15 or 16 to get a black belt. And that if a child is able to get one, it is the sign of a Mcdojo lol. I have also heard that it normally takes about 4 years to obtain the black belt the legitimate way.

So what happens if an eight year old starts Tae Kwon Do and after four years he is able to test for it? Does he just spar and train until he's 15? i dont get it..
