This paper proposes a new method that detects the intersection points of handwritten Hangul strokes using run-length. The method firstly finds the strokes' width of handwritten Hangul characters using both horizontal and vertical run-lengths, secondly extracts horizontal and vertical strokes of a character utilizing the strokes' width, and finally detects the intersection points of the strokes exploiting horizontal and vertical strokes. The analysis of both the horizontal and the vertical strokes doesn't use the strokes' angles but both the strokes' width and the changes of the run-lengths. The intersection points of the strokes become the candidated parts for phoneme segmentation, which is one of main techniques for off-line handwritten Hangul recognition. The segmented strokes represent the feature for handwritten Hangul recognition.
