Inside the Korean Alphabet

The Korean alphabet has 14 consonants and 10 vowels. Some letters may sound similar to English letters, while others may not have an exact match.

For example, the letter "B" in Portuguese sounds like "be", while in Korean, the letter "ㅂ" sounds like "p". Similarly, the letter "J" in Portuguese sounds like "je", while in Korean, the letter "ㅈ" sounds like "ch".

In Korean, letters are grouped into syllables. Each syllable consists of one or more consonants, followed by a vowel or vowel sound. To write a name in Korean, you will need to divide the name into syllables and then write each syllable using the corresponding Korean letters.

Difficulty writing names in Korean

Translating names into Korean can be done in several ways, depending on the user's purpose and preference. There are different transcription methods and systems, and each one can generate a slightly different result.

Korean syllables work with groupings of characters that form larger characters. The way this grouping is done can vary, there are some details like particles and other things that can confuse those who are not familiar with the language. 

The fact that the Korean language has 10 vowels can complicate things a bit. Some vowels can be similar, a single name can be spelled in different ways, personal preference can also affect the choice of Hangul.
