    Well-known web sites including U.S Gov. and other media broadcast has given me a great deal of shock by writing faulty comments such as "Korean language is an imitation of Chinese."

    It was unacceptable that internet sites as such were carrying wrongful messages. These incidents seem to have risen from lack of understand the complete process of Hangul making.

    Hangul was created by Sejong the Great in 1446 and was proven a long time ago that Hangul is completely different from chinese language in terms of text formation and shape of tongue and mouth when spoken.
    Also, Hangul can be distinguished from Chinese characters when look up a historical saying "Hangul, consisted of phonemic characters, is different from syllabic Chinese language and is made for people's expedient usage."

    Linguists from all over the World such as McCawley from Chicago Univ. and Reischauer from Harvard Univ. have extolled Hangul by saying that no language or character was as systematic or pragmatic as Hangul and it is indeed the best character, which mankind has ever developed.
    Hangul was designated by UNESCO in 1997 as a cultural legacy of mankind.
    Faulty propaganda "Hangul is a imitation of Chinese character" must stop from this instance!
