Korean Hangul may be considered a syllabic script. As opposed to many other syllabic scripts, the syllables are formed from a set of alphabetic components in a regular fashion. These alphabetic components are called jamo.

The Unicode standard contains both the complete set of precomposed modern Hangul syllable blocks and the set of conjoining Hangul jamo in this block. This set of conjoining Hangul jamo can be used to encode all ancient and modern syllable blocks.

See also Conjoining Jamo Behavior, Hangul Compatibility Jamo and Hangul Syllables

The Hangul jamo are divided into three classes: choseong (Leading consonants), jungseong (Vowels) and jongseong (Trailing consonants) which in the rest of this write-up will be referred to as L, V and T.

A standard Hangul syllable is composed as (L+V+T*) which is to say, one or more L, followed by one or more V followed by zero or more T. When parsing arbirtary jamo, grab the largest possible (L*V*T*) or (X+) and call it a syllable (X is any non-jamo).

For use in composition, two invisible filler characters act as placeholders for L or V : U+115F    Hangul choseong filler   and U+1160    Hangul jungseong filler. Use these to transform nonstandard syllables into standard ones.

The collation unit in Korean is generally the Hangul syllable block. The codes for the conjoining jamo are arranged such that a binary comparison of the jamo does the right thing.

Unicode's Hangul Jamo code block reserves the 256 code points from U+1100 to U+11FF, of which 240 are currently assigned.
