0070 - 場[장] - 마당 - open space, field, market

The Story [이야기] :

  • This is a pictophonetic character.  Earth 土 suggests the meaning, while 昜[양 → 장] suggests the sound.  The marketplace is a wide and open space above the earth 土.
  • 昜 is composed of 旦 which means early morning/early sunshine, and 勿, which can be interpreted as a shadow on the earth because of the early morning sun 旦.  Thus, 昜 can mean sunlight.  The sunlight 昜 shines above the earth 土, and can be seen in wide open spaces and fields.
