As I understand the situation with Korean, for someone to deliberately
ensure that a text is pure "Hang" is a "marked" case, and it would not
be unreasonable to mark it as such.  (This is quite distinct from a snippet
of text which merely happens to only have "Hang" characters.  That's
not a "marked" case, and adding a script subtag would not be useful.
This should not surprise anyone.)
