Apple Mail - Asian Characters?

Hello everyone. Ever since I've had the need to have multiple email accounts, I've been using Apple Mail (obviously, on Mac). I often get e-mails written in Korean, and I've never had problems before, but lately, I've received several e-mails with KOrean characters that doesn't show up on Mail. They come out as those weird characters. What can I do to ensure that all the Korean fonts come out all the time?

That might be partially the fault of the software that was used to send that emails as well. Could you post the full headers of one of the images that didn't display properly? (In case you don't know how to display these: I googled this page).

Specifically, if the software which send those emails does not specify what encoding the mail is send in, Apple Mail doesn't know what encoding to use.

PS. Feel free to censor/remove any private info from the headers, such as IPs, email addresses & subject lines.

Maybe simple change of encoding will help?.. (like in browsers. i think in this mail client you have such option as well). In most times bad encoding - it's only wrong default options chosen by soft...

It was sent from hotmail, which is the client I get the most emails from, and has worked perfectly fine; it is a favorite amongst the Koreans (hotmail/MSN). I'm using gmail.

Here's the full header though, if that wasn't enough info.

Spoiler for for full header:


I THINK I edited out all the private stuff. But I'm not much of a techie, so I might have missed something, or even, edited things that were not private. Either way, thanks for the help.
