One tip in typing korean is that, in the midst of typing if you want to shift between alphabets and korean characters, you can easily do that by hitting the [alt] key on your right side (not left) ….

The korean character on the keyboard is vowels on the right and consonants mostly on the left. You’ll have to get use to it.
Or you can purchase the sticker from www.4keyboard.com (price about $1 each) which you can stick on your keyboard to help in typing korean on your computer. Its really helpful in getting you know the keys better. Usually shipping takes about 10-20 business days for normal international mail for those outside US. I’ve tried buying from them, and they are quite reliable.
