As the computer becomes pervasive in everyday life, the programming arises as an essential technique. To support the education of programming, Republic of Korea has launched a plan to develop the official courses of programming by 2018. However, the programming education in Korea tends to be difficult and the students easily lose their concentration since most of programming languages are based on English. This paper proposes a Korean programming language called Saesark to promote the effective programming education for Korean students. Saesark has been developed based on Java, which supports the object-oriented programming and the lambda expressions. In order to evaluate the educational suitability of Saesark, we compared it with other Korean programming languages in three respects: syntactic features, IDE support, and error messages in Korean. According to the comparison, Saesark is revealed more suitable than other languages. Specifically, the IDE features and the error messages in Korean are expected to be mostly valuable in educating novice programmers.
