I'm korean, so I can speak on this; the Korean language is indeed very easy to learn, and the pronunciation and phonetics are pretty specific, but of course we do have our own share of accents as all languages do (well, most I'm sure). For Seo/Suh, they are both one and the same in Korean; the issue here is that for whatever reason, I don't why, but someone decided that when romanizing Korean surnames, they had to have multiple spellings. For example, a common one is Lee, a Korean surname that is actually pronounced with the "L" being totally silent when speaking in Korean, so as a Korean, if I say someone's full name in Korean and they happen to have "Lee" as their last name, the pronunciation in Korean will literally be the sound "-ee", the same sound you would make at the end of 'coffee'. And there are variations of that korean surname in English like Yi. It's weird.

I'm NOT Korean, but I often translate Korean... I cannot disagree more... for a foreigner, learning Korean ranks pretty high up there on initial difficulty. If you are captured by CIA and offered a chair of 24/7 water board torture or learning Korean, it is a wash.

I would agree that once you get past learning all the involved grammar for everything and get some vocabulary under you, Korean becomes ridiculous easy and natural.

I would agree even more that the various Romanization of Korean really, really sucks. It sucks so bad, I cannot say stuff that is romanized, I would need the Korean.

Learning the Korean alphabet is easy, takes one week if you are smart or two weeks if you are a box of rocks, but try hard.

Strange game!!! No fighting spirit like we're used to see. Injury? Fatigue?
