In June, there was a meet-up with the keyword called ‘Digital Nomad’ in J-Space. People of various fields such as developers, designers, and planners gathered but most of them were IT freelancers. On this day, Daehyeon Kim talked about how we can do coding with ‘Hangul’, which became a hot issue. Since then, people began talking about ‘Hangul Coding’ whenever they met Daehyeon Kim in J-Space.


July 20th, Business Idea Pitching Day’ and ‘People’s Library’ meeting were carried out in J-Space on this day. Daehyeon Kim gave an idea pitching on commercialization with ‘Hangul Coding’. Later, everyone had a lot to share through the meeting session.

It was fun! First of all, I was sort of reluctant to participate in the programs run by the center before, because I’m not really that much interested in commercialization. I’m more into developer platforms than running a business. Hangul Coding is one of those topics I might show interest when it shows a real potential. Until then, you just struggle with it all by yourself. So I was just hanging around, not thinking about anything particular, then these people I ran into at the J-space kind of sparked my interest. So at the beginning, you could say I was quite hesitant. But as it turns out, it was so much fun! I had enough material to put together a presentation since I’ve always been musing about it, and everyone was listening to my every word, even the non-developer audience. Then I got this call about publishing an article in an online magazine from some organization. It was all so much fun! (Laughs) Both the process and the result were satisfactory. It didn’t get picked as the best idea, though. I was kind of expecting this, so it shouldn’t be a big deal, but I still feel rejected so it’s a bit disheartening. Anyway, I can tell you that for the effort I put in, or for what I anticipated, I’ve got good result. Pitching days are not about investment. What’s more, it’s not like you’re having a resident screening! So the audience has low expectation value, and I think that contributed to my feeling comfortable during the presentation.

 In the ‘People’s Library’ meetings that were themed around <Hangul Coding> following the Pitching Day, we could listen to why Daehyeon tried to do coding in ‘Hangul’ and see many different examples. CEO Hojoon Lee of Paul Lab who participated in the meeting showed a website that elementary school students coded in ‘Hangul’, which became a very huge issue as well.

 At first I really didn’t want to do the ‘People’s Library’ meet-up that the Manager insisted upon. The topic of Hangul Coding itself is not mature enough yet. Even if it were, it’s a hard-to-explain topic. There are very few people interested in Hangul Coding. I especially did not want to have a meet-up in Jeju because I thought no one would come. But then when I actually held one, it was really fun. I liked how non-developers joined us, I loved the way Hojoon organized the feedbacks to pass on to me. Actually, people are not reluctant to the idea of doing coding in Hangul itself and it is an experiment in a way. It felt as if a vague idea got more specified. To be honest, I am the one who’s supposed to do all these experiments. But I liked how people did it on their own and taught me. I was the one who learned from them.
