I'm really proud of him because by making Hangul, he let us to communicate with each other and feel sense of kinship that we are all in one.

Stroke got worse -> Made his son to do the work instead of him from 1445

April 8,1450, He passed away.

He's buried with his wife Queen So-hun. Conclusion We have his day called Hangul day on Oct 9 but nowadays, people think it's just a holiday and don't know about him well. I think we should think about him and be thankful to him. I was happy to study about him again by making this presentation. Sejong the Great Name: Sejong the Great ( Do Lee)
