The font uses Segoe UI for Latin text, while the Korean glyphs are created based on the typeface of Hunminjeongeum, and streamlined with modern form of characters as well as upright and well-regulated strokes. The font supports KS X 1001 character set, but unlike Dotum and Gulim, there are no Han ideographic glyphs (Windows will pull from the Gulim hanja set instead), and the fonts don't include half-width fixed Latin glyphs. There are hanja designed for Malgun Gothic by ChinaType Design, Monotype Imaging Inc. and they will be released to complete the set sometime in the future. The glyphs aren't rounded at terminals.
Windows Vista includes two roman weights of the font.
