This bug #714436 was filed when fonts-droid did not ship
DroidSansFallback.ttf. So this bug has been fixed by #737105. But...

Moving those two files will bring back this bug again.
If we decide to drop Hangul from Droid font default installation, it's
OK. But these three remaining Hangul glyphs in DroidSansFallbackFull
will make problems. Removing two font files and leaving
DroidSansFallbackFull only, it will make the three Hangul characters
and others will be displayed in different fonts.

I think it is not necessary. There are many Hangul fonts nowadays. And
DroidSansFallback has its own Hangul glyphs. So if anyone installs
DroidSansFallback for displaying Hangul text, I think he/she wants
Hangul glyphs from this font, not from other fonts.
