It's really easy if you have a Mac. For the Windows and Linux boxes out there, it's a bit more complex but really very similar. It's all a matter of setting your keyboard inputs/language preferences.
I use the 2-Set Korean setting. With this, you will need to go and get stickers for your keyboard. I want to stay away from the romanization of Korean as much as possible, because it's a bit confusing and also it's not real Korean. It's best to get used to the script ASAP!
Good luck, and have fun!

In this video, I show you how to type in Korean on Ubuntu 11.04.
It took me a little while to figure it out, but It's very simple to set up. Granted, it isn't as easy to set up as OSX.
First you want to install the language packs. You'll go to System --> Administration --> Language Support and add the language pack for Korean. It may ask you to restart the computer to install the language packs.
Once you install the language pack, you want to go back to the same window, and select Ibus from the Input Method drop-down box.
After that, you want to click on the keyboard icon and select Keyboard Preferences from the drop-down menu. In this box again, you want add a language and select Korean. Then close out.
Finally you want to go to System --> Preferences --> Keyboard Input Method.
You will want to start the Ibus Daemon, so click yes if it prompts you.
You then go to the input method tab, and select Korean from the drop-down list. Then click add. then you should be all set up.
Now open up an application where you want to type something. How about you open Text Editor?
To enable the Input method, simply press CONTROL + SPACE. It switches the input to Korean. Pressing CONTROL + SPACE again disables Ibus and then you can type in English.
Happy Language Learning!
