Loose Signatures: Korean is a very hard language
I'd also argue that Korean morphology and syntax are significantly more complicated than Chinese, which results in a much steeper initial learning curve for expressing basic ideas in the language. Chinese is quite analytic, and while its demands on sentence structure are significant, you can learn to express basic ideas quickly with significant, if very awkward, parataxis. My Chinese is pretty terrible, but on just a year of classes, I can reliably express ideas like obligation, desire, causal relationships, suggested alternatives, facts known/unknown. It's also an SVO language, which abets an English speaker up to a point. Korean, in contrast, is highly agglutinative, and you need a significant repertoire of affixes in order to communicate some fairly basic ideas (like obligation and causal relationships). While verbs are much more lightly inflected than they are in most Indo-European and Semitic languages, they demand thorough internalization of principles of phoneme combination and harmony—rules that themselves carry laundry lists of exceptions. And because verb inflection conveys politeness, you are condemned to sound like an insolent boor unless you have mastered them. I can't speak about Japanese—which is more like Korean than Chinese in many of the respects that I've been mentioning—but if you can imagine trying to juggle the concerns of an agglutinative SOV grammar preoccupied with formality levels while also trying to deal with a menagerie of minimal pairs that your ears can barely discern, and several vowels that don't exist in your native language (ㅓ and ㅡ, I'm looking at you guys), I suspect that Korean has a critical mass of difficulties that at least matches and maybe surpasses that of Japanese for an English speaker.

Don't Skype Me: How Microsoft Turned Consumers Against a Beloved Brand
But Microsoft has paid a price for prioritizing corporations over consumers. The former seek robust security, search and the ability to host town halls; the latter ease-of-use and decent call quality. Inevitably, the complexity of the corporate software crowds out the simplicity consumers prefer.

“Not with that attitude,” Mitch says. “Look, I’m not proposing we defraud anyone, I’m just-”

“Proposing?” Auston finishes, wry.
