This doesn't matter much. You can avoid this message by passing -q to  
xdvipdfmx (not documented) and adding -E to embed that font in any  
case. The invocation of Xe(La)TeX would be then

	xe(la)tex -output-driver='xdvipdfmx -q -E'

You already had some problems with this font ... For me neither  
FontBook nor Linotype FontExplorer X report problems. But: this font  
has or seems to have a lot of gaps, missing glyphs. In its tables it  
states to have defined about 9,000 glyphs, but only a few hundred are  
actually visible. And a lot of them are not OK, obviously incorrect!  
For example numbers without surrounding circle, skinny glyphs in this  
rather bold font. Or in Latin digraphs like ⁈ one bold and one  
regular or light.

 From my and your experience I'd say this free font is scrap. What is  
so bad with Apple's Korean fonts? #HeadLineA looks alike, IMHO.
