門 gate, door 문
I remember this one as the scary monster behind the door from the Monki App for Chinese pictographs. Note that this is one example where the traditional Chinese used by Koreans 門 differs from the simplified modern Chinese 门. Just think of the hanja as looking like a traditional gate from a Korean historical drama.
Simplified at 3 strokes is easier than traditional at 8 strokes.
We may see a smaller component character placed inside of it like this: 間 (jian1).
