    October 9 is Hangeul Day! Hangul Day is a day set aside to celebrate the Korean alphabet, known as Hangul. The day is known as 한글날 (Hangulnal) in Korean, and is also known as ‘Hangul Proclamation Day’. Hangul was created by King Sejong in 1443 to help commoners read and write. Back then, people had to use Chinese characters because there was no Korean writing system. Celebrating the 573 years since the Korean Alphabet was promulgated to the public (in 1446), a variety of events will be held across Korea!! B-Boy Team the Jinjo Crew based in Bucheon will also perform!
