I've been unable to find a concise answer anywhere else on the web. Since its only a few words, albeit crucial ones, that are in Korean I don't want to have to muck around with HLaTex or deviate from pdfLaTeX that I'm using at the moment.

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

You can use the CJK package. A little example (taken from CJKutf8.tex):

@Gonzalo When I tried to run the code in my machine. It is giving following error ! Font C70/mj/m/n/10/c7=uwmjc7 at 10.0pt not loadable: Metric (TFM) file not fo und.'. Can you suggest me on this. Thanking on advance – Ansu Jun 24 '13 at 7:16
@Ansu the font is missing in your system. Install it using the package manager of your LaTeX system. – Gonzalo Medina Jun 24 '13 at 14:03
@GonzaloMedina One more question What is the name of the package for the korean fonts? – Ansu Jun 24 '13 at 22:53
@Ansu the package is CJKutf8; your system seems to be missing some metric font file uwmjc7.tfm – Gonzalo Medina Jun 24 '13 at 23:06

Personally, I had a lot of trouble trying to get the CJK package to work. So I went on the KTUG website and found that they use the package kotex.



The good part about this was I was able to simply copy and paste hangul from websites into the LaTeX document and it worked fine. I only wanted a few words (my name) as well, so this option might be quicker and easier.

In my experience, Will answer works for me.

If you want to install kotex package, you can use this repository URL in Tex Live Manager 2013.


If you use other version, such as 2011, you can just change the number in URL.

Manual of this answer is written in below page (But written in Korean).
