A quick overview of the Korean language
Until the 7th century, Korean was written in Chinese characters, which are not suitable for agglutinative languages, and so a syllabic alphabet was developed. In the 15th century an alphabet was created that is still used today, Hangul, a completely new creation that finally prevailed in the 20th century.
Korean is spoken by about 63 million people in South Korea, North Korea, China, Japan, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan and Russia. The relationship between Korean and other languages is uncertain, although some linguists believe that it belongs to the Altaic languages. Grammatically, Korean is very similar to Japanese and about 70% of its vocabulary comes from Chinese.
