I just have tested and here is the report:

"Guseul.ttf" contained in "ttf-alee" debian (maybe ubuntu as well)
package works well with wrapping at "current window size".
This font has Korean glyphs only; it does not contain any Latin glyphs.
Among dozens of Korean fonts I have, this very exceptional font is
the only one that works currently.

Normally, Korean fonts have Latin glyphs as well as Korean glyphs,
so resulting in over-long lines after wrapping at current windows size.
