There are many different kinds of scripts in the world, but few as simple as the Korean Hangul. Creating Hangul If you’ve seen the writing systems that look like strange scribbles from the far eastern countries, you probably also come across the Korean writing system known as Hangul.

There is an elusive quality to touching into the moment—and only this moment—that is hard to describe, perhaps impossible.
