Korean characters are garbled in the keyword tag pane of Lightroom 5.2 when "auto-complete text in keyword tags field" option is enabled.

This is a serious usability issue for all Korean users. For example, when I enter "라이카", it becomes "이카라라이카" as below:

This problem still appear Lightroom 6 on Windows.

If I can turn off auto-complete text perfectly, I can endure this bug.
But, when I unchecked "Auto-complete text in keyword Tags field" in preferences,  it applied only in tags field.
That means, it still happen at "Add Keywords" field and "Face Region".








Keyword function is very useful.
Unfortunately most of Korean can not use it realistically.

It's very old issue.
I really hope to be fixed ASAP by Adobe.
