How to Tell the Difference Between Chinese, Japanese, Korean?
Korean characters are made up of these symbols stacked into a square
to form a character. These symbols are like English alphabet except it's
stacked into a square, not laid out in a line.
To identify Korean, look for lots circles and ovals.
Chinese writing system are ideograph based. Each word is a independent character, not made up by a system of parts.
When you see something that complex, it's Chinese.
The Japanese writing system is made up of
Japanese phonetic alphabets
and Chinese characters.
Look for の. It occurs often. It means “of”.
