Using Korean IME


Korean uses a phonemic alphabet organized into syllabic blocks called Hangul. Each block consists of at least two of the 24 Hangul letters (jamo): at least one each of the 14 consonants and 10 vowels.  


Korean also uses Hanja (Chinese characters in the CJK Unified range) occasionally to clarify the meaning of certain words.  You can input Hanja characters by first typing Korean character(s) and converting to them to Hanja using the IME.
