    History of the Korean alphabet

    The Korean alphabet is unique. Meet the king who invented it and watch him work his linguistic magic in this chapter of the history of writing.

    On your journey, you wake up in another palace. This time you’re in Korea. The first face to greet you is that of King Sejong the Great. He tells you of centuries of struggles trying to fit Chinese characters to his Korean language. He compares it to Japanese. But he wants something cleaner, more efficient. You tell him about your alphabet, but he’s not impressed. Watch as he knocks your ideas down and invents a better writing system. Are you convinced? Could this be the greatest major moment in the history of writing?
