Korean Hangul to Hanja Converter!

On Metawiki discussion page, a user stated that it was 'impossible' to create a Hangul to Hanja conversion tool because 'Computers cannot understand human language'.

I disagreed with such a statement and have therefore proceeded to create a Hangul to Hanja conversion tool.

Due to the immensely large Hanja vocabulary in existence, there are still numerous vocab to add into the tool (for example, placenames, names of organizations, names of people) so let me know whenever you spot a Hangul word (2 sylablles or above) that can be written in Hanja Characters.

You can help improve the accuracy of the tool by leaving a comment below stating what those Hangul words are and what their Hanja equivalents should be and I will add those word pairs into the tool.

Usage: This tool converts both ways, so if a hangul word has been converted into Hanja, then it is possible to have it converted back to Hangul. Note: This tool does not convert individual Hangul syllables into Hanja nor does it convert individual Hanja characters into Hangul syllables. (If you wish to lookup each Hanja character individually, use this Hanja to Hangul Conversion tool instead)
