Hangeul is the Korean character used to represent Korean.
Hangeul is the only character in the world known for who made it, when, why and how.
Hangeul was made in 1446 by King Sejong the Great, King of Korea, to make it easier for people to read and write.
If you actually learn Hangeul for only one day, you will be able to read and write. It's so easy to learn that you'll be surprised.
Hangeul is composed of 14 basic consonants and 10 basic vowels.
- 14 basic consonants:
ㄱ, ㄴ, ㄷ, ㄹ, ㅁ, ㅂ, ㅅ, ㅇ, ㅈ, ㅊ, ㅋ, ㅌ, ㅍ, ㅎ
- 10 basic vowels:
ㅏ, ㅑ, ㅓ, ㅕ, ㅗ, ㅛ, ㅜ, ㅠ, ㅡ, ㅣ
Use consonants and vowels to create complex consonants and complex vowels, and create the first, middle, and final sounds.
Theoretically, 11,172 letters can be made using Hangeul.
Hangeul consonants are basically modeled after the shape of the pronunciation organ of human.
'ㄱ' and 'ㄴ' mimic the shape of the tongue when pronounced.
'ㅁ' is modeled after the mouth, 'ㅅ' is modeled after the tooth, and 'ㅇ' is modeled after the throat.
A new character has been added by adding a stroke to this basic shape.
