www.aheeyah.com <--- for lyrics

The easiest way I have found to learn hangul (and the way I did it) is romanizing lyrics. What I mean by this is going to a lyrics site and finding lyrics to a song, then copying it to some word processor and using a picture of the hangul alphabet to "Decode" it.

하루만 니 방에 침대가 되고 싶어
Haruman ni bangeh chimdaega dwego shipeo
