There is a billboard on I-77 nobo. between Tyvola and Tryon exits that is red with yellow Korean(?) characters/letters. Does anyone know what I am talking about? Can someone confirm the language and the translation? There is a similar billboard on I-485 too in Pineville. Hopefully it doesn't translate "death to America." (That was a little humor)

Maybe it says God Bless America? Maybe post a photo. I have connections to some Korean peeps. (Korean writing is very distinct.)

The one on 485 in South Meck is definitely Chinese, no idea what it says though.

There's one in French on 77 south near uptown, and it says "J'aimerais que tu sois ici" which means "Wish you were here." There are multiple other ones up around the area and I can only assume they all say the same thing. Not sure who or what the campaign is for. I've heard that it might be Wells Fargo based on the colors used.

Perhaps, "We're cutting Treasury purchases, watch the $ drop".

Or, not ... yet pictures will help. For the OP, Korean characters have far more circles than Chinese (traditional or simplified) or Japanese (derived from and closer ro Chinese). Pictures of the billboards?
