     :thumb: Thanks everyone for checking out the IC! Feel free to leave us some comments if we mistranslated or if there's any errors. For the most part we revised the set from V1 to the more well known MSTone Korean keycap set to get word definition down right.

    >>> "The goal of this set was to adapt the MSTONE hangul caps to something more modern and clean."

    You didn't "adapt the MSTONE hangul caps" - I wish you did! - Instead you've just designed (yet another) typical GMK clone.
    I'd really love to see you add an option for BIG (centered) Hangul Mono Caps (without the English).
    Then yes, it would be an adaptation of the MSTONE caps.

    There will always eventually be a WoB or BoW variant of language legends/sublegends, and I completely support the minimal colorway :D

    Hi there! I noticed a possible improvement that can be made to the kits.

    R1 1u End, Pg Dn keys can be moved from base to the numpad kit, as they are only useful if a numpad is present.
    In their place, please add R3 Pg Up, R4 Pg Dn for modern 65%/75% support.
    See how EPBT Ivory, EPBT Skadi, EPBT Be The One, EPBT 6085, EPBT Ramen Stop, EPBT TA Origins, EPBT Dreamscape, PBT Delftware, GMK Redline, GMK ThinkCaps and other recent sets did it.

    Edit: I also don't think the R2 1u = in the numpad kit is necessary. It can probably be removed. The R1 key should stay, though.

    The enter for the Icon mods is 1.75u while the enter for the base kit is 2.25u? Is this a typo on the render pics because the Enter looks physically longer than the Capslock key right next to it.

    Hey I know you took feedback and changed “insert” to 끼워 넣다 from 삽입 but honestly, I think 삽입 is better than 끼워 넣다. 끼워 넣다 isn’t the official term for insert on a keyboard. In all honesty, I feel like it would be better if you put the English pronunciations of the keys in Korean and it would look much less awkward. For example “backspace” can be “백스페이스”.

    Wow, this is fantastic!
    Good kits, I like F13 and ㅋ_ㅋ as well, nice ideas. 한/영 as well and all mods in Korean, I like all of this a lot.

    Questions:
    1) Do you have any feedback from Koreans on this to avoid awkward wording? Are the things the keys say actually what a Korean keyboard would have?
    2) Why is the tilde ~ so huge? Bigger than any other legend on the set and much bigger than when you type it (also on Korean keyboard layout).

    Instant cop anyway and hoping for a WoB version as well! :)

    Interesting set. I see that OP is taking legends from mstone 훈민정음 and that he/she has cross checked with some Korean community members. I have been looking for hangul alphas for BoW/WoB since I missed Projectkeyboard GB but this set takes it a step further. I like the idea and development but in its current state, I sadly would not join. The following is just my two cents trying to give constructive feedback, not tryna knock on anyone.

    For me personally, the nav cluster+3 above keys translations definitely have an inconsistency. For example, 그림 갈무리[print] meaning "finish off drawing," has become the modern word for print, 인쇄. 지우기[del] has similarly modernized into 삭제. Now, I have no issue with updating translations in and of itself but they do look out of sync with some of the adjacent keys that have not been updated. For example, 끼워넣기[act of inserting] has become 끼워넣다, which merely changes the tense(for lack of a better word) in which [act of inserting] is represented. In my opinion another word such as 삽입 might be more consistent with a more modernized look and sound of the legends. Also another small thing, 종료[end] seems to be a slightly mistranslated. There are other words/phrases I might consider for the other keys as well.
