Correct Asian music ID3 tags using iTunes
Authored by: daviddp69 on Jan 01, '05 02:20:44PM

Hi I had the same problem on my computer. I am converting from XP to OS X and upon importing all of my mp3s, i lost all of my Korean text. I have spent some time looking for a solution and this is the best one I came up with:

Go ahead and import the files as you normally would. Once they are done, go to the system prefs, International panel. From there, make Korean be the language to be used. Log out, log back in, and then start up itunes.

Select the files you want to fix and right click (or ctrl click) to get the sub menu. Look for the entry that has ID3 written on it.

On the ID3 window, select the option that says ASCII to Latin. It should be the second item you can select. Cross your fingers and if you're lucky, it should correct the ID3 tags.

Once you are done, you can go and switch back to English for the text.

I haven't tried it yet, but you might not even have to log out, you might be able to just switch to korean, start up itunes and it might work too.

Hope that helps some people
