  • this isn't as nutty as it sounds. in the Korean alphabet, each syllable which begins with a vowel is given an 'empty' consonant (ㅇ), which retains the LOOK of a consonant-vowel structure even when there is no consonant pronounced. my friends tell me the transliterations "Woo" and "Lee" for 'u' and 'i' follow that pattern.
