WHAT IS HUNMINJEONGEUM?
IT IS A BOOK...
- With explanations of the new simple and easy Korean alphabet (hangul), and how to pronounce each letter - Written by King Sejong - Writing system was created to increase the literacy rate
WHY SO SPECIAL?
The shape of each letter was made according to the position of the vocal organs used to articulate the sound of it.
IF THERE WAS NO HANGUL...
- We would use difficult Chinese Characters instead - Spend more time on studying our language over other academics and languages - Most elders and middle-aged citizens would be illiterate, due to the difficulty of the characters
