Although I'm sure a couple of million South Koreans are already on this, if North Korea does actually reform I think there will be some real money making opportunities there. Unfortunately, I don't know Korean. And despite solid Japanese, I'm probably to old (and lazy) to learn.

I don’t speak either language and even I can tell the difference between their written forms. Korean incorporates a lot of ovals

Korean unlike Japanese is always strictly phonetic, although it looks rather Chinese not Japanese to me.

I just looked that up. 8)

Grammatically, Japanese and Korean are apparently quite similar. Koreans can pick up Japanese quickly (when they're not being stubborn and unappreciative!). I've heard it is a bit harder to go the other way due to the pronunciation of Korean, but I've never tried. I've never attempted Chinese either, but the grammar is said to be completely different. Supposedly, it's actually closer to English in word order.

Japanese can be written entirely phonetically, too. But you only see that in very young children's books.
