Initial Position



The initial position of a syllable block in Hangeul. This refers to the first letter you see when writing a syllable - in Korean, this is always a consonant symbol. When the first sound of a syllable is a vowel, the syllable is always started with the consonant symbol (or letter) ㅇ. For example, 한 or 안.
