In the last decade, the Korean language has been drawn more interest among the younger generation than earlier in European history. This might be due to Hallyu as well as the rapid economic growth of Korea. Although it was an unknown language in the past, it was already explored by the renowned Finnish linguist, G. J. Ramstedt, who published A Korean Grammar in English in 1939. Not only had he begun his research on Korean in order to investigate the origin of his own national ethnic group, but he also taught Korean language and history at the University of Helsinki from 1934 onwards. His academic interest in the Korean language raises the question of the reasons for it being taught at European universities and asks for an appraisal of Korean language education in Europe. At present, many universities might be expanding the language programme to appease Hallyu fans, but it would be more likely that they recognise other more valid reasons to teach ‘Korea’ through the language. I presume that they want to unveil the humble hermit kingdom that has come to Europe by means of its attractive pop culture on the Internet. The spread of Korean pop culture has exposed Europe to modern Korea with its unique writing system rendering the nation even more interesting, intriguing the younger generation with aspects, such as its history, traditional culture, miraculous industrial development and international politics. The Korean language itself may represent the nation of Korea; hence, it has played the role of a basis on which to build up Korean Studies. As the demand for the study of Korean language is growing higher than ever, it is crucial to promote it better as a concrete branch of Korean Studies.
