The things you dream sometimes

A few nights ago, I dreamed that I saw a Chinese character which was not only fiendishly complex to write, but had, according to the character dictionary I saw in my dream, the complex Korean pronunciation of

ᄊᄒᄐᄊ호, or ssang-sios + hieuh + t’ieut’ + ssang-sios + hieuh + o

The romanisation of this monstrosity was given simply as “sso”. Transliterating would give something more along the lines of “ssht’ssho”. (That syllable is not possible in real-world Korean.)
