For the love of Hangul


Members of the Cia-Cia tribe, a group of 60,000 people on a remote island in Indonesia, arrive at Incheon International Airport on Dec. 21. The tribe made a decision this summer to adopt the Korean alphabet, Hangul, as its own means to write its spoken language. The nine-person delegation was invited by the Seoul Metropolitan Government and the Hunminjeongeum Society, a group of scholars devoted to the study and spread of Hangul. By Kim Kyung-bin
