Hi! I have a problem concerning a chinese(and japanese). When I learn a character, I learn the simplified and the traditional form but 明 is a big problem for me. His ancient form is 朙 and the left part of the character is the problem because I don't know what is the difference between 囧 and 冏 and the wiktionnary didn't help me.
So can somebody tell me what is the difference between these two similar characters?(囧 and 冏)

Well, I can't help too much (I've not encountered 朙, just 明), but after a quick google search, which turned up http://www.visualmandarin.com/tools/chinese-stroke-order/16269 , it looks like 囧's bottom stroke extends between the edges and 冏's does not (I already know how to write 冏, so I didn't Google it 😉 )
The left half of 朙 uses 囧, so just follow the stroke order for 囧 and put a 月 on the right side and you'll be able to write it just fine.
In terms of meaning, according to Visual Mandarin, it appears they mean the same thing, except 囧 is used as an emoticon that means "depressed" or "sad".
Hope this helps 😀
