They are Chinese characters but I believe the Korean written language includes, or used to include, a few thousand Chinese characters. In contemporary usage Korean is written with what is basically a syllabary. Native Korean speakers, please correct me if I'm wrong.Originally Posted by Patrick Bateman
Irrespective of the language in which the characters are written/woven, this is a Korean-made neck tie, yes?Originally Posted by mack11211
As to whether the tie is Korean-made or not, that depends on the answer to Seok's question. I don't think that all the Chinese characters traditionally used by Koreans are still meaningful to modern Chinese speakers, and if these fall into that category, then I suppose it could be Korean-made. I would guess, though, that Korean-made ties nowadays would mostly use hangul for the tags (although I don't really know).Originally Posted by AmInAm
For what it is worth, the characters are meaninful in Japanese as indicating that the product was made in country. I have seen quite a few neckties sold in Japan, but almost all of them have used a different set of graphs. 「日本製」Originally Posted by Bic Pentameter
