Hanja, or 'Sino-Korean characters', means the Chinese characters used in Korea, parallel to Japanese kanji.
The sound of the characters is quite Koreanized, but the meanings are almost exactly the same throughout in Korea, China, and Japan.
Getting oriented with some of the basic hanja's will help you to learn the Far Eastern culture in general.

  Hanja - Galbijim
Hanja is the name for Chinese characters used in the Korean language.
Korean used to be written entirely in hanja until the invention of hangeul by King Sejong and his scribes, and even then hanja was mainly used until the end of World War II.
Those who know hanja are capable of finding the hanja written in a hangeul script, though the process can be time-consuming especially given the fact that most software in Korea does not recognize hanja compound words and thus the user is often forced to pick characters one at a time.

 [KS] The finishing touch on early hanja education [English Translation]
Whether it be because those claims of usefulness of learning hanja, in respect of international matters, have proven unsatisfactory, for which claims one can find only weak theoretical arguments and little real evidence, their proponents have recently begun to assert increasingly the usefulness of hanja education in respect of national matters.
If the students who studied han.ja had higher IQ scores or greater capacity for abstract thought or had better classroom performance in chinese literature classes in middle or senior school levels, then such would be evidence of effectiveness of hanja education at the elementary school level.
Were the hanja students prove themselves comparatively not much better in IQ, abstract thinking, or in middle school chinese literature classes, then such would be evidence rather of harmful effect of early hanja education.

 Digital Chosunilbo (English Edition) : Daily News in English About Korea
Controversy is even raging on PC communication networks such as Hitel and Chollian, with those in the 10 to 20 year old age group, the Hangul generation, overwhelmingly opposing the idea, saying that the co-use of Hanja comes from cultural toadyism which considers Chinese characters as superior to Hangul.
The MGAHA however, expressed reluctance at the proposal with an official saying Wednesday that the sudden change to documentation with Hanja should be seriously examined considering Hangul has been used exclusively in official government documents for almost 30 years.
He said that the ministry is not considering the revision of related regulations even though it is needed for using Hanja and added that the matter of co-use should be decided by collecting opinions from relative ministries, academies and public, not by MCT's rough and ready method.

 Bryce Carpenter on Korean "alphabets"
Hangul is the modern Korean alphabet and Hanja refers to the body of Chinese characters that have been incorporated into Korean (in Japanese they are called Kanji, note the similarity).
My knowledge of Hanja is next to nothing, but one example of this principle that springs to mind is the word 'east.' It would of course be easier to illustrate the concept with a chalkboard rather than with a keyboard.
Recognizing the limits of Hangul as well as the advantages of retaining some Hanja, the Ministry of Education of the Republic of Korea directed Yonsei University in Seoul (the Oxford of Korea) to compile a list of 1,800 essential Hanja which were to be taught in all middle schools and high schools.
