Seoul to Hold a Hangeul Week Event in Honor of Hangeul Day

Seoul to Hold a Hangeul Week Event in Honor of Hangeul Day

In honor of the 600-year anniversary of King Sejong’s enthronement and the 572nd anniversary of Hangeul Day, the city of Seoul will host an event from October 6 to 14 that will shine a light on the changes that the influence and value of the Korean language has brought upon Seoul and its citizens.

The event will begin on October 6th with a proclamation ceremony for Hangeul week at Seoul Citizens Hall. This exhibit will comprise three themes: various cases of communal languages that were improved in Seoul, cultural property signs that were revised to help citizens better understand, and the linguistic differences between the two Koreas as a stepping stone towards a mature inter-Korean exchange. The exhibit will prove significant in that it is the result of cooperation between the National Institute of Korean Language and Korean language groups.
