Language is the root, culture and history of the people.
It is said that there are more than 5,000 languages in the world. Among all these various languages, Korean is the only language that has clear definitions on its creator and why and when it was created. World expert linguist professor, Neishua, once said that Hangeul is the most scientific language. American writer, Pearl Buck, said that the easiest language to read is Hangeul.
The spirit of this unique and great Hangeul is the foundation of 'Hallyu (Korea Wave)' namely ‘You Who Came From The Stars’ and other dramas and K-pop stars like Psy and Big Bang. Hangeul has spread beyond Korea, introducing Korean culture to the world. Through this ever globalizing world, we are all becoming one. Through KLC, you will all become friends who are learning about Korean culture and history and enjoy listening to K-pop together. Last but not least, I hope that you will all put on your best effort and shine through KLC. Korea and Singapore are forever friends and it is my wish that we will walk together hand-in-hand for many years to come. Thank you. Dr. Kim Soung O Principal Singapore Korean International School
