Lately I've been taken on an interest in the Korean language so I got lots of Korean games to install on my 3ds so I can have fun while learning the language and all of the games installed fine and most of them displayed Korean texts correctly, but some of the games when the character speak and display dialogue, the texts that showed up were a bunch of question marks embedded in a block, take the game Gon Baku Baku Baku Baku for example:

The dialogue shows up in question marks while other parts of the game display Korean texts correctly, I guess those are hard coded whereas the dialogue parts needs encoding.

Some other games display Korean just fine, such as Fire Emblem Fate and Zelda ALBW, no problems in the dialogue:

However, let's say if I create a new game file in Zelda, question marks appeared in the input:

My 3ds is USA and there is no option to set my system language to Korean thus no input for the keyboard to type Korean texts and it cannot encode the Korean texts correctly in the new game input, so after doing some research, it seems like I'll have to install the Korean version of the 3ds system software if I want full Korean support, or is there a simpler way to get around it? Maybe just getting the Korean font encoding files and install on my 3ds? Thanks.

I think that region changing guide isn't really what I am looking for, I think that is used to install games from different region, it also mentions this: "Note that region changing is almost completely unnecessary since Luma3DS supports out-of-region games and individual title region emulation."
What I am looking for is Korean codec or something to be able to render Korean texts properly.

I don't know why you are having that problem. I can run the korean version of maplestory just fine without the issues you are having

Interesting... I've never experienced the dialog problem before... I use a New JP 3DS LL for most of the games including some Korean games, and I always have had keyboard issues, but never the dialog... I guess each game a has different mechanic when showing texts. Weren't there font patching CIAs like a year ago? I don't know if that doesn't work anymore but..

yep I played maple story girls fate with no dialogue issue just like FE and Zelda, I guess it's one of those hard coded part of the game, no issues with rodea sky soldier or resident evil revelation or any of the Pokemon series, I guess Pokemon series are exempt due to the fact that every region release had seen multiple languages built in, gotta be hard coded

that font tool is probably what I am looking for, will check it out, thanks!
