In latest Japanese Mac keyboard has some special keys for changing input
There are Eisu key and Kana key.
In Korea, there is a Korean keyboard which is same layout with US QWERTY.
But it has additional two keys which are called Han-young and Hanja.
These keys are
used for changing Korean/English and translating Korean into related
The point is Japanese one and Korean's one make same ADB keycode on OS X.
Kana and Han-young makes 0x68. Eisu and Hanja makes 0x66.
I don't know why Apple did that thinng happen.
But Apple doesn't support Korean Input method keys.
Thanks to Apple, Korean input method keys can be activated on OS X.
I saw a thread about patching for Japanese keyboard.
But latest release of VirtualBox doesn't make any PS/2 scancode for
Kana and Eisu.
So I patched the /src/VBox/Frontends/VirtualBox/src/darwin/DarwinKeyboard.cpp
