As I teach you Korean language on this blog, I decided to go to National Hangeul Museum.
How To Get The National Hangeul Museum
Under the ground of Seoul, there are well made subway lines. So the easiest way to get the museum is using a subway. National Hangeul Museum is connected with ICHON(이촌) station which is transferable with the line No. 4 and Jung-ang Line. The another name of ICHON(이촌) station is National Museum of Korea since National Museum of Korea is also connected with ICHON(이촌) station before Hangeul Museum was built.

In here, we can see how, when, why Hangeul was made and who made Hangeul.
In advance to see those things, they show us what we used before Hangeul was made. (Right before when Hangeul was made, We used Chinese letters)

only noble could write their thoughts. That's the reason why King Sejong wanted to make Korean Alphabet, Hangeul. He Wanted to know citizens' Thoughts.

In here, we can see how the citizens learned Hangeul and how they used Hangeul in their daily life. They started to teach and learn Hangeul in school. By the time they were able to read and write, they began to put Hangeul into the fields of religion, art and daily life.

In here, we can see the history from 18th century until now. From 1894, Hangeul has been the national script of Korea. But 1910, Japanese invaded in Korea and they prohibited using Hangeul. Part 3 shows us the struggles of citizens against the prohibition, and the effort to spread in overseas.
