ok, here is the update: I tried several applications and the results are:

kate: ok
kword: not ok
kwrite: ok
openoffice writer: no scim support
scribus: no scim support
konqueror: ok
bluefish: ok
firefox: ok

so kword seems to have a problem, and
openoffice and scribus don't seem to know about
scim at all.

I was using "3bul final" input method. in case
that is important: I'm running the scim-panel-gtk
if that matters, not skim. no idea how I ended up
with kde and the gtk panel, but that combination
works well.

but it is best to use scim/skim which has plugins to work with both qt and
gtk2, right? or is it better to somehow use their native plugins/im
modules/whatever? all those choices are great, but I'm somehow confused.

anyway, thanks to all your and Maits help I got it working. I can live
without kword/openoffice writer and scribus for now, even though getting
those to accept korean properly would be nice.

oh, and konsole with vim works too.
also kontact works nicely :)

Thanks a lot and 안녕히계십시오!
