So I have this really weird problem that never got fixed when I reinstalled Windows about two years ago due to a nasty virus I had gotten that completely messed up an old hard drive. I had used a program called iAmazing to get all my songs back I lost from my computer; which were all on my iPod btw. Most of them worked but when I had played certain KPop songs on Windows Media Player; the font looks all broken and nothing like the hangul letters its supposed to represent. Eventually, I did a work around with the fonts and the rest of my KPop, JPop and CPop all display the correct letters; it's just the songs I had played in the beginning that just won't work at all. Even after using mp3tag (which I use to rename files that are stubborn that Windows can't rename titles), the letters will not display in their proper language.

 

Can anyone help with this issue or see if there's some type of codec to make Windows Media Player display Asian fonts correctly? I've tried every solution on google like deleting the fontcache.dat and reboot and nothing seems to work. Either that or recommend a different media player. Thanks.

See if the following works. Open Control Panel. In the Search Control Panel box type Fonts > View Installed Fonts.  Look for Malgun Gothic. Click on it and then Show in the Menu Bar.

Haven't rebooted or deleted the fontcache.dat after doing what you mentioned. I'm suspecting it might be the file itself that's messed up in Windows Media Player only. I even tried making the title blank, renaming it to the English title, but oddly enough, the broken letters will show up. (As for the artist name, it shows perfectly fine in the proper hangul. No idea if this is a Windows Media Player cache or font cache issue.)
