Hangul

The Korean alphabet is called Hangul or Hangeul. Each letter in Hangeul indicates an individual sound or phoneme. Hangeul is an alphabet system proposed by King Sejong in 1443 during the Joseon dynasty---it was initially called Hunminjeongeum ("the right sound to teach the people"). King Sejong tried to make an alphabet that matched the structure of Korean, and was easy to learn and write. In the end, there were 28 letters (11 vowels and 17 consonants). Useless letters were deleted and useful ones were added, resulting in 40 letters (21 vowels and 19 consonants).
