HOW TO: Set up English / Korean keyboard in Xorg

English keyboard layout: Colemak
Korean keyboard layout: 3beol

Install Korean fonts:
fonts-baekmuk, fonts-unfonts-core, fonts-unfonts-extra

Install uim, uim-xim, uim-byeoru packages
It would install the packages:
libuim-custom2, libuim-data, libuim-scm0, libuim8, uim, uim-byeoru, uim-data,
    uim-fep, uim-gtk2.0, uim-gtk2.0-immodule, uim-gtk3, uim-gtk3-immodule,
    uim-plugins, uim-qt5, uim-qt5-immodule, uim-xim               

Set the environment variables for uim in ~/.bashrc

export GTK_IM_MODULE='uim'
export QT_IM_MODULE='uim'
export XMODIFIERS='@im=uim'

Start xfce and open a terminal, run uim-pref-gtk3

$ uim-xim --engine=byeoru &
$ uim-pref-gtk3

On the preference window

[Global settings]
Specify default IM: on
Byeoru: default
Disable other input methods by clicking on the 'edit' button.

[Byeoru] 

Set Korean keyboard layout to 3 beol
Specify the korean/Hanja dictionary that Byeoru will use, and other miscellaneous settings.

[Byeoru Keybinding 1]
Set the hotkey Shift+Space to nable/disable Byeoru.

Add two lines in ~/.config/xfce4/xinitrc
(I do not use slim and use ~/.xinitrc to start Xfce4)

uim-xim --engine=byeoru &
uim-toolbar-gtk3-systray &

exec startxfce4

For duboel (2boel) keyboard layout is de facto standard of Hangul input (Korean alphabet).
Virtually all Korean IME developers assume Qwerty as English keyboard layout and they uses Qwerty key maps.

Dvorak

Colemak

If you are using Dvorak or Colemak for English like me, Korean words will be broken.
uim-byeoru developer was Korean and provided custom keymap solution luckily.
I created a key mapping file for Colemak and 3beol, saved it to ~/.uim file.  uim-byeoru overrides default keymaps of English (Qwerty) and Korean (Dubeol).
