    I chat with my friends a lot in korean, and I'm also thinking about buying a new iBook sometime in the near future

    can I install MSN Messenger and the korean IME so I can chat in korean with my friends using a mac?

    I know you can in word processors and Internet applications, I don't see why you wouldn't be able to in MSN Messenger. :dunno:

    You can type in korean (or chinese, japanese, russian, etc) in OSX without installing anything extra, and properly written applications can take advantage of that.
    But whether MSN messenger takes advantage of the built in functions depends on microsoft.

    just go to international settings, tick hangul, whack the language menu in your menubar, and you're away.
