    A korean kanji (Chinese Character, or, hanja) trainer..interesting. This may come in useful some day. For those that care, Korea doesn't actually use kanji but most of the nouns have their pronunciation derived from them. Most of the kanji words are identical to Japanese, except they are pronounced in a Korean way, and they are written in old (more complex) style. Example: Korean ?=?=hak, Japanese ??=?=gaku

    The similarity in Japanese and Korean is remarkable, because both are derived from Chinese, however nowadays they have a lot less in common with the Chinese language. Japanese and Chinese evolved seperately, but a lot of the new words found their way from Japan to Korea. I've seen research that suggests 80% of the Korean and Japanese kanji-words are similar, while both languages only match roughly 20% with Chinese.

    OMG I just gave u guys a lecture [​IMG]

    I think JDS might help you, but you better get cources or a book.
