I read the FOP mailinglist from time to time but I am not very familiar 
with FOP at the moment. :) So my suggestions/assumptions might be wrong. 
But what I saw from your FO file it seems everything ok. My editor 
displayed something that looks very Korean. :) According to your examples 
you specified


As far as I know, FOP 0.20.5 can use the first entry from the above list 
only. So if I am right, FOP just looks into the font "serif". And if it 
can't find any Korean characters it falls back to the hash character.

To make a long story short, I would suggest:

1. Check the font if it contains Korean characters
2. Check your FOP configuration file.

Probably you should also give FOP 0.92.x a try. As far as I read there are 
lots of improvements.

Hope that helps,

Thomas Schraitle
