Phase 1

Status: Complete

Current format: see the full resolution
New format: see the full resolution

Phase 1 will be adding all hanja characters, applying the new hanja template, formatting and moving information. To see the difference from the current format to the old format, please see the pictures on the right.


  • Old format links to the Korean page, i.e. <錯覺>
  • New format links to the Hanja character's page, NOT linked by the Korean letters: 착각 <>. Note if you see '-' or '-' it means it's NOT a hanja character, so don't link it. For example: 육개장 <->.개 is not a hanja character.
  • New format: No capitalization after the dash, unless necessary.
  • New format: First word of the hanja character's definition is capitalized (after the colon).

Use this script made by Ikzelf instead of manually removing and adding brackets:

Phase 2

To be announced

Photoshop team

For those who are going to use photoshop, you will simply create hanja characters that are missing and upload them. You will need to have Korean installed on your system, as well as these two files:

  • Basic template PDF: Hanja template.psd
  • You will need to use this font: HYhaeseo.zip
  • Just copy and paste any missing characters you see into the psd file
  • Center the image
  • Save as .png format
  • Upload. You can also try using the multiple file uploader: Special:MultipleUpload
  • Save in the category: Hanja characters by typing [[Category:Hanja characters]]
    • After uploading, hit back on your browser and reupload other files, you shouldn't need to type in the category again, it should still be there.
