A Brief Summary about Hangul:


The Korean alphabet known as "Hangul", a group of Korean phonetic symbols, is known to be one of the easiest to learn. It is scientific and logical way of  expressing sounds in written symbols.

The original Korean alphabet (historically known as "Hoon-Min-Jung-Eum") was created by a king in the Lee Dynasty, "Se-Jong The Great" in 1443 AD. Not like English alphabet that was created by the gradual evolution over a long historical times, Hangul was created at once by a scientifically minded person or group to write Korean native language in phonetic symbols. It is known that Hangul is probably the only alphabet in the modern world, created from scratch, exclusively to write the sounds of a native language. That is why it is logical and is also very easy to adapt and apply to any other languages in the world.

For an average person, it may take just a few hours to learn to write most of the linguistic sounds. In Hangul, the basic principle of creating sounds is very similar to English alphabet. While modern English alphabet is made up of 26 symbols (or letters) with 5 vowel letters (A, E, I, O, U) and 21 consonant letters (B, C, D.... and the rest), the contemporary Korean alphabet is made up of 24 letters with 10 vowels and 14 consonants (but more alphabetical letters can be created by combining).

Though it can not produce all the sounds of the world languages (no other alphabets can do  such a feat anyway), it is very flexible and reasonably close in making most of the human linguistic sounds.

The "Hangul" is being used not only in Korea but also has been adopted in other parts of the world where people applied it to write their own native languages that only exsisted verbally. There has been worldwide interests in learning Korean alphabet, and, as the Korean names like Hyundai, LG, and Samsung becomes household words, there appears to be an increasing demand to learn Korean language as well.
