광주시 일선 학교... 한글날 행사 ‘풍성’

 

The Ministry of Education will hold a wide range of events Wednesday to celebrate the 573rd Hangeul Day in various schools in Gwangju and Jeonnam.

 

Hangeul is the writing system for the Korean language, consisting of 24 letters. King Sejong the Great led its invention with a team of scholars, and Hangeul was promulgated in 1446.

 

This years event, the Hangeul quiz is expected to attract many local students and organizations concerned with Hangeul or King Sejong, and more.

 

The event will kick off with a screening of a video about the national holiday, Hangeul Proclamation Day, and about the excellence of the writing system. There will also be a reading from the Hunminjeongeum, the document in which King Sejong set forth the new writing script and explained each character.

 

Apart from the main event, exhibitions and hands-on workshops related to Hangeul will be open to the public Wednesday and Thursday.
