Korean--typewriter--Hangul--keyboard--clover--portable
Came across this beauty the other day in a mobile phone shop in South Korea of all places. The Shop assistants didn’t understand why I wanted a picture any more than I understood what the machine was doing there. 
   Some research indicates that the Clover ‘Top Star’ (you gotta love the Konglish) was made in Korea by a machine parts manufacturer as part of a short-lived attempt on the ROK’s part to break into the Typewriter market just ahead of their automobile and shipping boom.
What I want to know is how you type on a Hangul typewriter. Korean computers and mobiles use a sort of auto-correct to combine vowels and consonants. Please tweet me @charlie_daly if you know; I have a feeling the pimply faced smartphone salesman hadn’t a clue.
