This is my first birthday in Korea. And it is the first time in many years that Korea brought back the Hangul holiday. Korean is the only written language where we know when and how it originated. It was invented in the Joseon Dynasty under King Sejong in 1443. However, Korean was spoken before Christ walked the earth, it was just written out in Chinese.
As I am learning Korean I notice that reading it is easy, pronouncing it is tricky at times, and the lack of pronouns can, at times, drive me nuts. Nevertheless- it is always fun to learn a new language. And this one was created with great care and makes more sense than other languages (except Korean could use some more pronouns).
