I haven't checked the code, but I think these are text style attributes and 
that CLIM is supposed to render these in a particular font as best it can 
(according to a mapping defined for each CLIM medium).  It may be that the 
mapping for Korean doesn't allow for these text styles, in which case a 
reserved text style is supposed to be used - obviously that ought to be a 
`sensible' style but maybe it isn't.  Anyway, this shouldn't really be done at 
the level of the application.  i.e., if that's the problem, it's a Franz bug, 
not ours!  There is an option to setf `text-style-mapping' which could perhaps 
be used to patch if this is the problem, but of course I've got no idea of the 
available fonts for Korean
