In South Korea, there are numerous great and famous men that shone the name of “Korea”, and if my city were to build a statue to honor one of them, it should be King Sejong. He was one of the greatest men in Korean history. He changed the lives of all Koreans and I thank him greatly for having done what he’s done for the citizens of Korea.
First and foremost, he created the letters of the Korean language. Before this creation, Koreans borrowed Chinese letters and used them in an eccentric way.
