“A new Hangul design project for phonetic transcription of foreign languages absent in Korean”

«Sori» emphasizes vertical and horizontal strokes and perfect circle geometric shapes, as well as adding ‘new Hangul* letters’ to compensate for the lack of foreign pronunciations (f, l, r, z, etc.). Some letters are taken from old Hangul (ㅿㆍ) while others were newly designed based on the principles of Hangul.

«Sori» allows more accurate pronunciation for foreign locations and names suitable for authors, artists or travel books.

«Sori» began in 2005 as Eunyou Noh’s graduate project, and research continued into her graduate thesis Hangul Writing Standards for Japanese Phonetic Writing (MFA, 2008) and was introduced as a font in 2020.

*New Hangul Support (multi glyphs)
«Sori» like other contemporary Hangul fonts can be used on all programs, but the ‘New Hangul for Foreign Pronunciations’ is only available in OpenType support programs (Adobe InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop). Select New Hangul in the Glyphs panel or access the function in the OpenType multi glyph panel.
