Re: Interesting IDNs

Thanks Andre. Are you finding a lot of interesting Korean IDN's just because you have a particular interest in Korea? I read you are interested in Korean, Japanese and Chinese languages. Is the usage in Korea of IDN's greater than in China and Japan?

Actually, my original purpose for this thread was to gather and list and storify any interesting IDNs of any script or language. I randomly chose Korea as a starting point and I still keep finding interesting Korean IDNs so I have not yet moved to other countries/languages/scripts. Basically, the more one learns, the more one explores, the more one discovers then the more there is of interest.

I have not yet compared usage with other countries but I would currently guess that IDN usage will be much higher for China

At the entrance to the pension there is a large rock with it's name painted on it. Naver Street View 네이버거리뷰 ➜ http://naver.me/FMAEpbQW I highly recommend taking a street view tour of this island.

Re: Interesting IDNs

Korean Domain Name 한글 도메인 네임

Today, October 9th, is Hangul (also romanised as Hangeul) Day 한글날. Hangul is the script used to write Korean and it was created during the reign of King Sejong 세종대왕 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hangul_Day

To mark this day I have looked for Korean Domain Name sites with a page containing the key word 한글날. Here are some of my finds:

• Hangul Day at Yedang School 예당중 한글날에 다양한 민속행사 http://화성투데이.한국/5103

• Korean Folk Village Event to Celebrate Hangul Day 한국민속촌, 한글날 맞이 특별 이벤트 진행 http://국민문화신문.한국/bbs/board.php?bo_ta...ws&wr_id=14011

• 572th Hangeul Day Event Holiday Outing 제572돌 한글날 행사 법정공휴일 나들이 https://노하우인포.닷넷/596

The following link is especially relevant to this forum as it promotes the .한국 TLD

• Hangul Domain Event on Hangul Day 한글도메인행사(한글날) https://한국인터넷진흥원.한국/intro/photo_View...No=38&d_No=291

As a Hangul Day bonus, here are links to youtube videos promoting the .한국 TLD. My favourite is the second video. The large statue in the large plaza is King Sejong.

http://아이디코리아.한국/0-id/bbs/board.php?...=02014&wr_id=2

http://아이디코리아.한국/0-id/bbs/board.php?...=02014&wr_id=1

In place of the dot in .한국, the red and blue Taegeuk 태극 is being used https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taegeuk This Taegeuk is central to the Korean flag. Apart from being significant, it looks totally cool

Yeolrigi Pension http://열리지펜션.한국

This pension has an impressive set of amenities which are shown on their impressive photos in their slideshows on their site. I wonder what the bluish sausage, on the grill in one of the photos in the slideshow, is made of ➜ http://열리지펜션.한국/sub03_3.html ?

On their location kakao map http://열리지펜션.한국/sub05.html there is a smiley map marker. It is the first time I have encountered such a custom marker or maybe it is the first time I have noticed. Anyway, I think the smiley map marker looks cool There are many cool custom map markers at https://iconarchive.com/search?q=kakao+map

Listed in their nearby tourist attractions section is Oegosan Onggi Village 외고산 옹기마을. Onggi 옹기 is a traditional Korean pottery https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Onggi Here is a kakao road view 카카오로드뷰 of Oegosan Onggi Village 외고산 옹기마을 http://kko.to/a8Z6T_cfB

Heung-A BKT Tyre Distributor 흥아.BKT타이어총판 http://흥아타이어총판.한국 & http://각종타이어총판.한국

Ah! This company supplies tractor tyres. Many years ago I was an Agricultural Mechanic. I have changed many tractor tyres The tyres were often more challenging to change because they were often filled with water. This is a common practice in order to increase the weight and thus improve the grip of the tyre. Here is one of their heavy duty tractor tyres http://각종타이어총판.한국/bbs/board.php?bo_table=0201&wr_id=3
