    • Feb. 2, 200716 http://ima.korea.army.mil/morningcalmweekly The Morning Calm WeeklyRediscover Hangul, the Korean alphabet By Cpl. Lee Yoon-joo 2nd Infantry Division Public Affairs T hroughout history, humans have taken great steps from ancient times to the modern world we are living in today. And, no one doubts thatwritten language played a great role in developing culture,society as well as science. Yet, for Koreans, it means farmore than that. Korean King Sejong created “Hangul,” the Koreanalphabet. Before Hangul was invented, Koreans had to useHanja, the Chinese characters, to read and write. However,because it was foreign language, it could not fully expressthe thoughts and spoken language of Koreans. Moreover,Hanja was too complicated for the common people, mostlyfarmers, to learn. They could not submit legitimatecomplaints to the authorities, other than through oralcommunication, and they had no way to record theagricultural wisdom and knowledge they gained throughthe years. King Sejong felt sympathy for the people and searchedfor solutions. What he envisioned was a set of lettersuniquely Korean and easily learnable, rendering itaccessible and usable for the common people. After yearsof research with great scholars, Hun-min-jung-um, the firstKorean alphabet, was born. In the proclamation preface, King Sejong said, “Manycommon people had no way to express their thoughts inwriting due to the complexity of Hanja. Out of mysympathy for their difficulties, I have created a set of 28letters. The letters are very easy to learn, and it is my hopethat they improve the quality of life of all people.” The alphabet originally had 28 letters, but only 24 areused today, 10 vowels and 14 consonants. The shapes of the consonant letters represent theoutlines of the parts of the mouth and tongue used topronounce them. The vowel letters come from the shapeof sky, earth and people. By resembling the shape of themouth and three elements, one can easily learn how towrite and read Hangul. Its simplicity and small number ofletters lessen the burden of memorizing them as well. It is no coincidence that by the time the Korean childrenreach school age, most master Hangul. Hangul also pulleddown the illiteracy rate to near zero percent mark in Korea. Hangul is also the most original alphabet in the world.Most of the alphabets in other countries have gone throughmany complicated changes with a long history in order tobecome the letters they use today. Some, like English PHOTOS DAVID MCNALLYalphabets and Kana letters of Japanese, derived from other BY A King Sejong statue at Deoksu Palace honors the famous monarch for his role in developing “Hangul,” the Korean alphabet.languages such as Latin and Chinese. However, Hangulhas only gone through minor changes. It is the only alphabet in the world which has the exactrecord of the creator, the purpose and the date of creation.Today, there are about 3,000 spoken languages and, amongthem, there are only about 100 languages which havewritten letters. There are no alphabets that have exactinformation on the date of origin, the purpose of creationand the name of creator other than Hangul. Lastly, nearly any sound or language can be translatedin Hangul without any difficulties. By combining eachconsonant and vowel, Hangul can write 12,768 letters,meaning it can produce 12,768 sounds, which is the largestsound pool in one language in the world. Usually a voweland a consonant can be combined into a letter, butsometimes a letter can be a combination of two consonantswith one consonant, or one vowel with two consonants. The United Nations Educational, Scientific, CulturalOrganization awards the “King Sejong Literacy Prize” tothose who contribute to reducing illiteracy. On Oct. 1,1997, UNESCO even designated the Korean alphabet as aworld archive property. Hangul has been at the root of the Korean culture andhas preserved its national identity. It is in the heart of Hangul is the only alphabet in the world to have an exact date ofKoreans as the greatest heritage of all. Koreans even creation. Hangul immediately lowered illiteracy rates.designated “Hangul Day” to celebrate the creation ofHangul every Oct. 9. Smart brains and diligence were notthe only elements that derived the miracle of Han Riverand many other economic revolutions in Korea. It wascultural power like Hangul that drove Koreans to where King Sejong’s legend lives on as Koreans celebrate his alphabetthey stand now. during “Hangul Day” each Oct. 9.
