Brief History of the Korean Language:
Chinese characters arrived in Korea together with Buddhism during the pre-Three Kingdoms period. There are about seven different dialects of the Korean language. It was originally written using Chinese characters known today as “Hanja”, which was designed to either aid in reading Hanja or replace Hanja entirely. Nowadays, Korean is mainly spelled in the Korean alphabet, “Hangul” which consist of 24 letters, 14 consonants and 10 vowels. The alphabet is written between two to five characters.
Since the Korean War, through 70 years of separation, North–South differences have developed in standard Korean, including variations in pronunciation and vocabulary chosen, but these minor differences can be found in any of the Korean dialects and still largely mutually intelligible.
