Not only that, but the amount of borrowed English words in Korean makes it pretty easy to figure out what's written on signs. The Korean alphabet is really easy to learn and very convenient!
Now, spoken Korean is a headache, that's for sure!
Agreed. I had learned Hangeul pretty easily - now grammar and speaking it is the hard part.
Hanja (Chinese characters) from what I've read is more used in legal documents and newspapers.
