I know next to nothing about East Asian scripts, but this reminds me of
a similar case. When my father learned German (say, 50 years ago), German
books published in France were printed using Fraktur style (it was the end
of this trend however), and he learned this style for reading; even if for
writing he used the Roman style. Exactly the way you (Erik) describe the case.
