Fan Art: Asia and the World!
Just a small, poorly-drawn jab at the eastward region to Humon's creation.
Korea used to use Chinese characters a looong time ago but later changed to system of its own alphabet that is very simple and easy to learn. I image China and Japan like to feel all high and mighty with their complex hanzi/kanji
I wrote 한글 'hangeul' for Korea, which is the name of its alphabet or writing system.
Japan says 憂鬱 "Yuu-utsu" which is "melancholy" or "depression". Chosen just for the complicity.
China says 為甚麼 "weishenme" which means "why?". Chosen because I studied simplified Chinese and I remember my friend from Hong Kong showing me the difference between the simplified and traditional differences of 为什么/為甚麼 and being surprised
So here's a terrible sketch taken with a terrible camera instead of a scanner because I'm a lazy twat.
Korea: "Oh, look at our language! So beautiful and complex!"
Japan: "Aw, isn't Korea just cute, China?"
China: "Yes, just adorable."
