why did he make the Korean alphabet?
Joeson is famous for art in particular its buncheong (white powder) pottery however, many cultural artifacts were lost during the Japanese invasion of the 16th century.
Before the creation of Hangul, only members of the highest class could learn hanja (it was typically used to write Korean by using Chinese characters that they borrowed ) it was quite difficult to read and write, so King Sejong made the 28 letter Korean alphabet.
Each Hangul letter is based on a simplified diagram of the patterns made by mouth,tongue and teeth when making the sound related to the characters.

The blocks of letters are then strung together linearly
First made in 1446, so anyone could learn hangul in a matter of days.
