      In that case you often get better result by setting $LANG for Vim only:

      env LANG=ko_KR.EUC gvim file.txt

      'guifontwide' only works for UTF-8. For Korean you must use 'guifontset'.

      Perhaps some day someone will figure out how to set the fonts automatically
      and/or make a font browser select the right fonts for the character set.
