A group of 11,172 made up of citizens, Korean residents overseas and foreign residents here will each be invited to write a Hangeul letter on a paving stone in Seoul City's project to form a Hangeul section within a central park.

Seoul Metropolitan Government began accepting applications from people to participate in the project, Tuesday.

This is part of the city's "Hangeul zone" comprised of 470,000 square meters near Gyeongbok Palace and Sejong Street in order to promote the Korean alphabet as a representative cultural item.

"We chose the Hangeul section plan for Sejongno Park. A total of 11,172 letters, which can be made by Hangeul's 14 consonants and 10 vowels, will be written on each of 11,172 paving stones", a city official said.

Of the letters, citizens will write 10,682, while 369 will be allocated to Korean residents in 26 countries, 66 to multicultural families, and 55 to foreigners here.

Until April 10, citizens can apply for the project via post or through the city's website, Open the link . Overseas Koreans can apply through Korean embassies in their home countries, multicultural families, through the Central Office for Multicultural Family Support Centers, and foreigners here, through village centers including the Seoul Global Center.

Those selected can view the letters on the website, handwrite the letters, and send photos of them to the city between April 13 and 21 via post or email.

Each of the letters will be written on a 10-centimeter by 10-centimeter stone. The park section is scheduled to be opened to the public in July.
