Fact of the Day: Sejong Hangul

Until the reign of King Sejong the Great in the 15th century, Korea had no alphabet of their own. Before the creation of the Korean Hangul alphabet by their king, Koreans would read and write with Chinese characters.

Hangeul was such a great invention. It certainly makes reading Korean a lot easier than Chinese/Japanese...now, if only the grammar is as easy....

Hi! Very interesting! Chinese letters have changed greatly. Recently we can not understand many Chinese letters.
