On Windows, strings will display correctly in either NFC or NFD provided an appropriate font is used--that choice being different for Japanese and for Korean. Windows 7 and earlier do not ship with fonts that support Old Hangul, but Old Hangul fonts are available from other sources; e.g. there's an MS Office add-on sold in Korea that includes Old Hangul fonts.
One limitation wrt Japanese marks: when drawing in GDI in vertical orientation, marks may not position correctly if there is no precomposed character for the combination. That's not an issue for the strings you provided here, however.

Subject: Application that displays CJK text in Normalization Form D
Is there even a single software application that properly displays CJK text in Normalization Form D?
NFC: 나는 유리를 먹을 수 있어요. 그래도 아프지 않아요
NFD: 나는 유리를 먹을 수 있어요. 그래도 아프지 않아요
Aren't the two versions of the same Unicode text supposed to be rendered the same? They're not, at least not in any of the applications in which I've viewed
them: Microsoft Internet Explorer, Microsoft Notepad, Vim, BabelPad and SC Unipad.
