Korean Standard KS C 5601 - 1987 only included Wansung Hangul.
In 1992 Korean govenment revised it to KS C 5601 - 1992.
KS C 5601 - 1992 newly included Johab Hangul as Annex 3.
As we know, Unifiled Hangul was from Microsoft. It is MS's own
extention including Wansung Hangul that enables us to use
11,172 Hangul characters.
So, Ken's information is right partly.
The byte range for KS C 5601 - 1992 - Wansung is A1-FE for both bytes.
But the byte range for KS C 5601 - 1992 Annex 3 - Johab is
First byte range Second byte range
Hangul: 84h - D3h 41h-7Eh, 81h-FEh
User-defined area: D8h 31h-7Eh, 91h-FEh
Etc.: D9h-DEh 31h-7Eh, 91h-FEh
Hanja: E0h-F9h 31h-7Eh, 91H-FEh
Wansung Hangul and Johab Hangul are different.
They have same characters(Hangul, Hanja, Etc.) on different
As I know, Korean Windows 95, NT is based of Unicode, and
implement Unified Hangul including Wansung Hangul on top of it, Unicode.
