XOs and Fedora include SCIM, which provides input methods for many languages
including Korean.  As long as the correct input methods & fonts are
installed, all that should be left to make them work in Sugar is some

However a quick glance at Sugar's Pootle system (used for translation)
suggests that only about 25% of phrases in Sugar have been translated to
Korean.  So while you could write in Korean in Sugar, viewing Sugar
activities in Korean might be a bit hard.  If you or someone you know can
volunteer to help translate things into Korean, I'm sure Chris would
appreciate the help.
