The Korean alphabet, known as Hangul (English: HAHN-gool) in South Korea and Chosŏn'gŭl in North Korea, is the modern official writing system for the Korean language. The letters for the five basic consonants reflect the shape of the speech organs used to pronounce them, and they are systematically modified to indicate phonetic features; similarly, the vowel letters are systematically modified for related sounds, making Hangul a featural writing system. It has been described as a syllabic alphabet as it combines the features of alphabetic and syllabic writing systems, although it is not necessarily an abugida.Hangul was created in 1443 CE by King Sejong the Great in an attempt to increase literacy by serving as a complement (or alternative) to the logographic Sino-Korean Hanja, which had been used by Koreans as its primary script to write the Korean language since as early as the Gojoseon period (spanning more than a thousand years and ending around 108 BCE), along with the usage of Classical Chinese. As a result, Hangul was initially denounced and disparaged by the Korean educated class.
Modern Hangul orthography uses 24 basic letters: 14 consonant letters and 10 vowel letters. There are also 27 complex letters that are formed by combining the basic letters: 5 tense consonant letters, 11 complex consonant letters, and 11 complex vowel letters. Four basic letters in the original alphabet are no longer used: 1 vowel letter and 3 consonant letters. Korean letters are written in syllabic blocks with the alphabetic letters arranged in two dimensions. For example, the Korean word for "honeybee" (kkulbeol) is written as 꿀벌, not ㄲㅜㄹㅂㅓㄹ. The syllables begin with a consonant letter, then a vowel letter, and then potentially another consonant letter called a batchim (Korean: 받침). If the syllable begins with a vowel sound, the consonant ㅇ (ng) acts as a silent placeholder. However, when ㅇ starts a sentence or is placed after a long pause, it marks a glottal stop.
Syllables may begin with basic or tense consonants but not complex ones. The vowel can be basic or complex, and the second consonant can be basic, complex or a limited number of tense consonants. How the syllable is structured depends if the baseline of the vowel symbol is horizontal or vertical. If the baseline is vertical, the first consonant and vowel are written above the second consonant (if present), but all components are written individually from top to bottom in the case of a horizontal baseline.As in traditional Chinese and Japanese writing, as well as many other texts in East Asia, Korean texts were traditionally written top to bottom, right to left, as is occasionally still the way for stylistic purposes. However, Korean is now typically written from left to right with spaces between words serving as dividers, unlike in Japanese and Chinese. Hangul is the official writing system throughout Korea, both North and South. It is a co-official writing system in the Yanbian Korean Autonomous Prefecture and Changbai Korean Autonomous County in Jilin Province, China. Hangul has also seen limited use in the Cia-Cia language.[出典:Wikipedia]


「愛しい彼女がふとした瞬間、胸を張って言ったのです。「私、今日からあなたを『』で呼びますね」。 何故そう思ったのか聞くと、「あなたの存在は、私に元気な気持ちにさせてくれるからです。それに、は今にも弾けそうなエネルギーが溢れているようで、あなたの強さを感じたからです」と理由を明かしてくれた。 彼女の言葉に、私は深く感動した。ずっと誰かに必要とされ、愛されたいと願っていた私だったけど、そんな気持ちはずっと自分で抱え込んでいた。でも、彼女との出会いで、私自身が強くなれること、そして、誰かを支えることの大切さを知った。彼女が私を愛してくれるのは、私自身が持っている強さやエネルギーを感じ取れるからなのかもしれない。 そんなことを考えながら、私は彼女に向き直り、「私も、あなたを愛し続けます。あなたに元気な気持ちを与えること、そして、あなたを幸せにすることが私の役目だと思っています。だから、これからも私たち二人で、強く生きていきましょう」と誓い合ったのです。 今では、私たちはお互いをエネルギー源とし、学び合い、支え合う仲になっています。が私たちが共有する言葉になってしまったかもしれませんが、それで良いのです。私たちにとって、それは二人の愛と強さの証なのですから」。
