Hangul (한글)

In 1443, King Sejong the Great, the fourth monarch of the Joseon Dynasty, created the unique Korean alphabet
(Hangeul), which people could learn and use easily. Hangeul is very scientific and systematic in structure. UNESCO recognized its cultural value in 1997, listing Hangeul on the Memory of the World Register.
Hangeul consists of ten vowels and 14 consonants, which can be used to represent every sound in Korean.
