Korean Language Society is a society of hangul and Korean language research, founded in 1908 by Ju Si-Gyeong.

Hangul Day was founded in 1926 during the Japanese occupation by members of the Korean Language Society, whose goal was to preserve the Korean language during a time of rapid forced Japanization.[1]

It established a Korean orthography (한글 맞춤법 통일안) in 1933.
