0081 - 漢[한/탄] - 한수, 물 이름 - the Chinese people, Chinese language

The Story [이야기] :

  • This is a pictophonetic character.  Water 氵 suggests the meaning, while 黃[황 → 한] suggests the sound.  The character 黃 means "yellow".  The legendary "Yellow Emperor" gave life to the Chinese civilization, just like water 氵 gives life to all living things.
  • Mineral water 氵 is precious to all of humanity since it gives life.  Yellow 黃 metals like pure gold are precious to all of humanity since they are the "natural currency" that should be used in all trades.  The Chinese people are precious because of their good human nature and customs, and because of the beautiful traditional Chinese characters.
  • If the meaning is "a new year/era", 탄 is used.
