Korean Characters

Korean is called the official language of South Korea, there are 75 million people in the world who speaks Korean. 48 million people are those who live in South Korea and the rest 24 million people are from North Korea. The Korean language is derived from the Northern Asian language which is known as Altaic. It includes Mongolian, Turkish, and Japanese. Korean was modified by the Chinese but then it adopted its writing system. There is an official writing system in South Korea called “HANGUL”, it is the name of one of the Korean Characters which means they both are the same. The Korean language uses Hangul as its writing system.
