Hangul jamo characters in Unicode

Hangul Jamo (Korean: 한글 자모, Korean pronunciation: [ˈha̠ːnɡɯɭ t͡ɕa̠mo̞]) is a Unicode block containing positional (choseong, jungseong, and jongseong) forms of the Hangul consonant and vowel clusters. They can be used to dynamically compose syllables that are not available as precomposed Hangul syllables in Unicode, specifically syllables that are not used in standard modern Korean.
