"Speaking" Korean without really speaking Korean, as a tourist in South Korea got 2 downvotes, and put "On Hold" as "Too Broad". On the other hand, it also got 8 upvotes and three great answers, including from people who don't usually post answers.
The question How to "speak" Russian, if you don't speak Russian? , asked last year, wasn't closed, and didn't get any downvotes.
How could I have asked my question about Korean better? Would splitting it up into separate posts (eg a post asking about Hangul, a post asking about pronunciation) have helped?
I might have tried asking questions on a Korean Language stack exchange, but it's only in Area51. I had also read Wikivoyage's "Talk" section on South Korean prior to asking my question, but it didn't have enough information.
