Or, 'ko-Kore', as registered with IANA:

Type: language
Subtag: ko
Description: Korean
Added: 2005-10-16
Suppress-Script: Kore

>From ISO 15924:

Hani 	 	Han (Hanzi, Kanji, Hanja)
Kore 	 	Korean (alias for Hangul + Han)

I'm not going to pretend I understand the difference. ;)

But since it's registered as 'Suppress-Script', it means that if you
just tag something as 'kr', you really meant 'ko-Kore'.
