After I upgrade latest OS X version, autocorrect does not work any more in Korean mode. It worked well in 10.9 and 10.10.
But it works without problem in English mode.
For example, typing -> should be →.

I did not change any setting.
NeoOffice and AOO have same issue in 10.11.
Other native (cocoa based) apps don't have any problem about autocorrect.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select Korean mode.
2. Type ->
Actual Results:  
Select Korean mode
Type ->

Expected Results:  
nothing happened

I think language input system changed in 10.11.
I found another issue.
I cannot change Korean word to Hanja(traditional Chinese character).
For example, 
Typing certain Korean word and "alt+return" should show Hanja list which has same pronunciation. But LO cannot show anything. It just ignores that.
Only LibreOffice, Aoo and NeoOffice have this problem.
Is there any expert to help me?

Note: "Korean mode" = Korean input source

After upgrade to 10.12 sierra, OpenOffice does not have autocorrect issue any more.
LibreOffice and NeoOffice still have same problem.

But OpenOffice still cannot change Korean word to Hanja character.

Dear Jeehyun,

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

2. Test your bug

4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
