Short description of error
Korean characters are broken(should appear as 자소분리)
ㅈㅏ/ㅅㅗ/ㅂㅜㄴ/ㄹㅣ should view as 자/소/분/리
This error happens because of Unicode Normalization difference

  2. Type Korean anywhere

*Worked in Blender 2.79, and presumably in Windows

Here's a test font

I can reproduce the issue in Blender 2.82 and in 2.79. Since you say it works in 2.79, can you show a screenshot of that?

Yup, it's also broken in 2.79b. My bad.

@Bastien Montagne (mont29) do you happen to know if this should work or is it a known issue?

Afraid that this is the usual 'complex script' issue (similar to Thai and many others). This is a known TODO (we need to use a proper unicode compositing engine, right now we have a basic own engines which only works for some very simple things). I will merge in the task we have about this.

It should work, but AFAIK many programs have this type of error
Don't know of any problem report from Korean macOS users on blender forums, apparently.
