Is there some way I could add Korean support to the program, or maybe to the game itself?
I am unfamiliar with how written Korean language works so I am not sure if it is possible.

However, the game does not use regular fonts for the text shown in-game, but rather a set of images that contains the letters it displays. Look in swpc_tex_gui.erf with KotorTool for the images whose names start with fnt_ (for example fnt_d16x16.tpc). You'd probably need to replace the roman letters with korean ones at the very least. Don't know if that is enough though.
