    Korean has a phonetic writing system.
    The word "chullae," meaning "butterfly," is written like 출래.
    ch=ㅊ
    u=ㅜ
    l=ㄹ
    r(double l)=ㄹ
    ae=ㅐ
    All you have to do to write a word is to remember its pronunciation.
    (I know that some people know this as there are some Korean media fans on here, but I posted for tbos who would not know about it.)
