The History of Seoul
The Korean capital was originally called Han Seong. The name has changed a few times, but Seoul is still the official name for the city. During its history, it has been called Wiryeseong, Hanyang, and Hanseong. But what is the origin of the name? The city’s name was derived from a number of different sources, including a dynastic writing system in Chinese.
The modern city is home to many colleges and universities. Several of the country’s top universities have their campuses in Seoul, including the prestigious Korea University, Yonsei University, and Seoul National University. Seoul’s colleges once attracted students. Today, Korean government policies encourage students to attend a college outside the city, so the name ‘Han Seong’ has been changed back to “Seoul” as the name of the capital city.
It is also interesting to note that Seoul was once called Han Seong, after the Hangang River which flows through it. Historically, the name of the city varies from one source to another, but in Korean, the most common source is the Hangang River. As the city developed, its name changed as well. It was changed to Han Seong by King Sejong in 1443. The name of the city changed to Han Seong in 1443 because King Sejong was a noted Confucian scholar. King Sejong placed great importance on scholarship and developed the system to make the language more understandable to all people.
The Korean language is a complex language. There are many dialects of the language. Nevertheless, Seoul is the largest city in the country. As such, the language is highly varied. For example, Han-myeong, a famous swordsman, has a dojang in his hometown. Han-myeong’s dojang also features a front stage in his garden where students practice and battle. In the afternoons, you can hear the training cries.
