What is wrong with this video and with their book on 한자 (漢字?

Answer: They don’t talk about Chinese sentences.

I’ve found that the best way to learn Chinese characters is to read them in sentences rather than lists of words. In other words, you learn Chinese characters first and then remember them by reading and writing them in sentences. For example, consider these Chinese characters:

person (person) person

口 (구) mouth opens

立 (立) Whoa, whoa, hold, immediately

門 (문) through the gate

在 (재) present, in, in

有 (유) there is / there is, we have

After you learn to read and write the six letters above, you remember them by reading and writing them in sentences. For example, here is a sentence that will help you remember the six letters above.

有人 立 在 (Yuinripjaemungu)

There is (有) a man (person) standing (standing) at (at) the entrance (door) door (구).

If you can read and understand Chinese characters in memorable sentences, you should also be able to remember them when they are paired together in memorable words.

I like the video below, but they seem to be more interested in teaching Korean words than teaching Chinese characters. Learn the letters in sentences and phrases first, and then the words will become easier.
