A true classic, an essential reference for any serious student of Korean ever since the first edition was published in 1979. The picture of the author on the back cover shows what you had to look like back then to learn the language. The book purports to be a guide to both hangeul and hanja, but beyond a few pages explaining the principles of hangeul, it really has to be thought of as a learners dictionary of Chinese characters (hanja) as used in Korean. Certainly hanja aren't used like they used to be 25 years ago, and nowadays you can get by reading a Korean newspaper without having to read any hanja-based words written as such, but you will never build much beyond a simple vocabulary without some knowledge of hanja meanings. Sure, some will still argue that you don't really need to study Chinese characters any more, but hey, at least they're easier than Korean grammar! Publisher: Hollym. Hardcover: 367 pages. Dimensions (in inches) 7.75 X 5.4 X 0.9. Price: 15,000 won.
