Sports depicted using hangul for Beijing Olympics


To celebrate the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, Korean clothing brand Basic House designed some super cool t-shirts using the Korean alphabet, Hangul. Football, archery, swimming and, of course, taekwondo were a few of the sports depicted using the characters.

There’s no denying this is one great idea. I don’t know how the Koreans themselves feel about wearing clothes with their alphabet on it (I mean, English sentences/words seem to be the norm in there, as it is here in Brazil), but they’re definitely beautiful.

Check some pictures of the actual (super colourful) t-shirts modeled by actress Yoon Eun Hye here and here.
