Malgun Gothic font family

Overview

Malgun Gothic is a Korean font developed by taking advantage of ClearType technology, and it provides excellent reading experience particularly onscreen. Its elements are created based on the typeface of Hunminjeongeum, and streamlined with modern form of characters as well as upright and well-regulated strokes. The font is very legible at small sizes with its moderate open counters, and its even inter-character spacing and visual center line maximize the readability.
