      Could you send me a sample image or put it up somewhere?
    Hangul vowel Arae-A (U+119E) is supposed to go *below*
    leading consonants according to 'HunMinJeongEum
    EonHae' (see or see the the fifth bullet point
    in section 3 in PDF.)

    I may have seen it go to the right in some old documents, but I'm not sure.

       variation selector?? U+119E is not listed in
    so that it's not conformant to use it for U+119E...

    The tables here exhaustively lists the valid, registered combinations of
    base character plus variation indicator. All combinations not listed in
    StandardizedVariants.txt are unspecified and are reserved for future
    standardization; no conformant process may interpret them as
    standardized variants. Variation selectors and their use are described
    in The Unicode Standard
