Several month ago, I have tried Korean typesetting with MKIV,
but the result was short of satisfactory one.

These are minimum typesetting rule for Korean documents:

``Korean characters'' means here
all Hangul Syllables (U+AC00 .. U+D7A3) plus Chinese Ideographs.

- Spaces between words should be preserved, as Wolfgang said.

- Linebreaking should be allowed between Korean characters.
  We prefer here \penalty50 or \discretionary{}{}{} rather than \hskip.

- Linebreaking is allowed between Korean character and Latin character.
  We prefer here \hskip0pt to make possible hyphenations inside Latin word.

- Kumchik (``Kinsoku'' in Japanese) rule is the same as Chinese or
Japanese typesetting:
  * Linebreaking should not occur after, for example, opening parentheses.
  * Linebreaking should not occur before, for example, closing
parentheses, comma, or fullstop.

That's all.
