Korean Input Method

/!\ This page built to help non-native Korean characters (Hangul) users. If anybody have trouble writing in hangul, show them this page.

There are several input methods for typing in Korean.


This simple and common IM is latest internationalized input method, and has taken hold in FedoraProject as the main input method.

scim-hangul is what you need.

If you don't want to learn Korean keyboard layouts, the scim-table engine has a "Hangul Romaja" method with which one can input Korean characters by typing with the Latin alphabet, as by scim-anthy.

For fedora users, fedora may not have scim-tables-korean package. Then try scim-m17n and m17n-db-korean. scim-m17n has Romaja method which support romanized hangul input.


Nabi, which means butterfly, also a common name for cats, is a modern XIM implementation. It is recommended over older input methods such as [http]Ami or HanIM.

for GTK+ or Qt

The author of Nabi has also made hangul input modules native for GTK+ 2 and Qt.


IIIMF has a Korean character engine.

It is now deprecated, as far as Korean input is concerned. Please try SCIM instead.


Uim is a multilingual input method library.

Most of individual language input modules are written in Scheme, and run by embedded sigschem interpreter.

With the release of 1.0 version, Uim is shipped with a new Korean input method module name byeoru (Thanks to the Jae-hyeon Park's effort.) Those who want to input Korean with Uim, please use byeoru module. That is what you want.

Quite a few people complained about uim's Korean support before 1.0 release. But now, it works flawlessly out of the box!

Generosity and perfection are your everlasting goals.
