F9 was used in a 101-key keyboard layout in the past.
Currently, A 103-key keyboard layout or a 106-key keyboard layout is
used in Korea.
Both of them are added Hanja key and Hangul key.
But some people are still using F9 and Shift-Space.

A problem is a input method.
Generally, The input method for conversion of Hanja is converting a
completed Hangul letter to a Hanja letter.
Most of Korean IMEs are implemented these method.
The input method of emacs is little awkward.
