Go to System/Preferences/Keyboard. Click on the Layouts Tab and make sure you have both the USA layout and the Korean layout. you can have USA be the default.

Then click on Other Options...

Click on the arrow titled Layout Switching

Then choose one of the options to switch the keyboard from english to korean or vice versa.

Personally i like to use the option Right Alt Key Changes Layout then all you have to do is tap the right alt key to switch back and forth between your layouts.

Also you might find it useful to use the option Use Keyboard LED to show alternative layout

You can tell it to use the scrollLock LED to show you which layout your using.

hope this helps you out! Time for me to get some bulgogee and kimchee.

If you have a U.S. keyboard, can you pretend that it's a Korean keyboard and use the right alt as a 한영 (hanyeong) key?

I tried adding the a Korean keyboard layout and enable the "Right Alt Key Changes Layout" as mentioned, but that doesn't seem to do anything.

I can only type 한국어로 when I evoke the SCIM input method editor with my shortcut (Ctrl + space). I much prefer to have a virtual one-button next-to-spacebar 한영 key on my U.S. keyboard though.
