Kanji to Hanja: 100 Words for Rapid Learning

Before I started studying Korean I had heard that the two languages supposedly were quite similar. However, even though I was fluent in Japanese I couldn't really understand anything when I listened to conversations in Korean. After I started studying Korean I noticed that even without using kanji/hanja the Korean language is still based on the same fundamental Chinese characters, which made it interesting for me to search for Japanese and Korean words that had some sort of connection to each other.
I have been working on this list for a little while now, so I really hope you enjoy it. Please let me know what you think ^^

UPDATE: A new extended list with 300 words!

Thanks again to Jostein for the nice logo:D
