Windows 7: korean characters not showing up

korean characters not showing up


How do I get Korean characters to show up on chrome? It shows up just fine everywhere else (explorer, itunes etc)

I've tried
  1. Changing system locale to Korea
  2. unchecking "hide fonts based on language settings" in font settings
  3. deleting FNTCACHE.DAT

P.S. I think this problem is specific to chrome because Korean characters show up fine in IE 11
