As you can see xdv2pdf produced an output file (and most likely a  
correct one). The WARNING message appears on Tiger regularly when a  
PostScript font is used that needed to be converted to OTF first  
before embedding. I never found (could find?) a fault with this  
messages and fonts, although it makes me nervous and uncertain.

The error that you only see blank background instead of Korean text  
seems to happen in Leopard (Mac OS X 10.5) with quite a few PDF  
viewers. And it's not restricted to Korean only. Obviously only Adobe  
Reader can display correctly. Some users mentioned that quite old  
software which was never adapted to Leopard seem to mess up "font  
caches." TeXniscope is one such application. For some users it seemed  
to help to clean these font caches and to log out and in, for some  
just logging off and in already helped – and not using again  
TeXniscope, Equation Service, or LaTeX Equation Editor.



There's something the technicians need to learn from the artists. If  
it isn't aesthetically pleasing, it's probably wrong.

If your question is of interest to others as well, please add an entry to the Wiki!
