Editor's Notes

  1. Korea is a peninsula located between China and Japan. Some consider the Korean language as one a “language isolate”, a natural language with no demonstrable genealogical relationship with other languages; others note possible links to Altaic, or Japanese.
  2. Hangul is the only alphabet in the whole world invented by one person. It is a purely phonetic alphabet with 10 vowels and 14 constants.Koreans used Chinese characters before the invention of Korean alphabet. The majority of Koreans were effectively illiterate before the invention of Hangul. In explaining the need for the new script, King Sejong explained that the Korean language was different from Chinese; using Chinese characters to write was so difficult for the common people that only privileged aristocrats, usually male, could read and write. Hangul was designed so that even a commoner could learn to read and write."Hunmin Jeong-eum Explanation and Examples“ explains the design of the consonant letters according to “articulatory phonetics” and the vowel letters according to the principles of “yin and yang” and “vowel harmony”.From http://library.thinkquest.org/20746/non/info/index.html
  3. Hangul writing system reflects the characteristic of the sounds... each letter of Hangul was made with the shapes of the vocal organs in mind. From http://library.thinkquest.org/20746/non/info/index.html
  4. Click the pictures to watch music videos and excerpts from TV dramas.The Korean Wave (Hallyu, 한류, 韓流) refers to the increased popularity of South Korean culture around the world since 1990s. The term was coined in China in mid-1999 by Beijing journalists surprised by the fast growing popularity of South Koreans and South Korean goods in China. South Korea is among the world's top ten cultural exporters and the Korean wave began with the export of Korean TV dramas such as “Autumn Fairy Tale”, “Winter Sonata”, “Dae Jang Geum” (Jewel in the Palace), and “Princess Hours” across East and Southeast Asia. The growing success of Korean dramas was soon matched by Korean movies, popular music, food and language. While popular throughout Asia, the Korean Wave's influence is most visible in China, Japan and Southeast Asia, spreading to the Middle East and Russia.The Korean Wave is rapidly expanding beyond Asia through the internet and has a substantial presence in North, Central and South America, and is increasingly becoming popular in the United States and Canada. It is gathering positive interest in North Africa. Currently, the Korean wave is starting to hit Europe (including United Kingdom, France, Spain, Germany), New Zealand, and Australia.
  5. Most paintings’ background is left blank, allowing space for the viewer’s imagination. Signature of painter and seal in red ink are part of the painting. Often painters use multiple seals and seal engraving is an art itself. Calligraphy is an important part of the Korean painting.
  6. Elegant jade-green celadon became a signature pottery of Goreyo dynasty perfecting the technique in mid 12th century. The inlaying technique of incising patterns on the surface of the vessel was an unique invention of Goreyo craftsman. In the entire world at the time, only China and Korea possessed the technology necessary to produce the celadon ceramic ware.
  7. Click the title “Korean Dance and Music” to watch collage of Korean Dance.Please click the pictures to watch video clips of Korean dance performances.Court dancers often accompanied by an ensemble of Korean instruments. Some are slow and elegant (upper left), while others may start slow but tempo accelerates toward ending. Upper right is Korean fan dance.Folk dance and music are frequently played by farmers, after harvest or at the field to cheer up the famers at work. Percussion instruments are important parts of folk music. Farmers dance (bottom left) shows performers wearing hats with long tapes spinning. The performers spin the tapes by rotating their heads while playing small hand-drums and gongs. Gang-gang-suwol-rae (bottom right) was performed by young women under the bright full-moon festival at the first harvest known as Chu-seok (equivalent to Thanksgiving day in US).

  9. More side dishes were served for more affluent people, while less were served for poor people. Kimchi is fermented vegetables. Typical kimchi is made of Korean cabbage with hot pepper. Numerous variations of kimchi exist such as kimchi made with cucumber, radish, turnip, or green onions. Some kimchi is prepared without hot-pepper.Pictures on left shows many side dishes; picture on right is Bi-bim-bap, rice with several vegetable and beef toppings served with hot-pepper paste and sesame oil.
  10. Korea is one of few countries where Buddhism and Christianity coexist with almost equal strength. Worldwide distribution of religion: Christianity (catholics + protestants + others) 33%, Buddhism 6%, Islam 21%, Hinduism 14%, no religion 16% (in 2005 from www.adherents.com)
  11. Three elements are seen as essential to a “goot” (Korean shamanistic ritual): the spirits as the object of folk beliefs, the believers praying to those spirits, and the shaman mediating between the spirits and the believers.
  12. Buddhism is a philosophy and religion, brought to Korea almost 1800 years ago. The principles of Buddhist teaching are deeply rooted in the way of life among Koreans regardless of their religion.Many national treasures in art and architecture are Buddhism related, such as, Buddhist temple buildings or statues of Buddha.
  13. Joseon dynasty adopted Confucianism as its ruling ideology. Important Korean Confucian ceremonies are “coming of age at age 15 years”, marriage, death, and the anniversary of an ancestor’s death. Among these, funerals had the greatest effect on people’s lives. The funeral was a way of expressing one’s innermost feelings, and its conduct and atmosphere depended on the degree of intimacy or formality in the relationship between the living and the deceased. The Joseon promoted a revised form of Confucianism,calld Neo-Confucianism, that had also been developed in China. In the 18th and 19th centuries, scholars developed and promoted the emergence of Silhak, or Practical Learning, which some see as an early step toward modern social and scientific practices.
  14. Korea is the only country where Catholicism was brought in by a native missionary, Kim Dae-Gun, who went to a seminary in Macao. Rev. Kim returned to Korea as an ordained priest and was executed during persecution along with thousands of other fellow Catholics. The monument for martyrs is at the site of execution, Jul-Doo-San (meaning “mountain of beheading”).Protestant evangelists came to Korean during the Japanese colonial occupation. They operated high schools, colleges, and hospitals and gained strong influence among better educated young people. Currently, Korean missionaries, the world’s second largest group after Americans, are working in more than 150 countries.
