Is hangul based upon or similar in structure to an ideographic script?

1. Hangul is a phonetic script, while kana is a syllabic script
Hanja is the Korean word for Chinese characters. For the most part, Korea has phased out the use of hanja, but they're still seen in older or more formal writing.

Even though hangul is phonetic, the consonants and vowels are arranged in blocks so that each syllable looks sort of like a hanja.
