The space is far larger than what you'd expect from the tiny entrance. There are a lot of interactive digital media spots, where you can learn all about the space and King Sejong. I forgot to take a photo of a cozy computer corner set up like a mini terraced theatre.
More goofing around. The lettering in front is Hangul, the Korean alphabet. The most important achievement of King Sejong is the creation of Hangul in the 15th century. Before Hangul, Koreans were using Chinese characters to read and write, although our spoken language was completely different. (Like western nations using the same Roman alphabet for different languages.)
Literacy was only for the educated, the scholars; nobility. Chinese characters are difficult to learn; there are so many and much time has to be spent learning them. Commoners, of whom most were farmers, didn't have the luxury to learn.
