    Hello Hyunwoo Sun,

    I recently found out that the most frequently used words in language are: (see below)
    I learned that these words make up 60% of any language. I am trying to learn Korean and was wondering if you could translate these and write them out in hangul. I know this is a tedious task so maybe you could make a game out of it or get others to contribute. I think this would be a great benefit to everyone if you put this on your site.
    Thank you,
    -Karson
