How to view an “.hwp” file

23 May

My Korean boyfriend is currently working at Luxur Place Bacolod  as an intern/student. I really can’t understand how their system works and what is he really doing there. All I know is everything is free and all he has to do is pick up people at the airport and orient them at the hotel or something like that. For me to understand his work more, he sent me his work files and those were .hwp type of files.


According to Wikipedia, Hangul (also known as Hangul Word Processor or HWP) is a proprietary word processing application published by the South Korean company Hancom Inc.. It is used extensively in South Korea, especially by the government.

Hangul’s support for the special needs of the Korean written language has gained it widespread use in South Korea. Microsoft Wordand Hangul are used alongside each other in many South Korean companies.

The software’s name is derived from the Korean word Hangul (Korean: 한글, hangeul) for the alphabet used to write Korean.

To view .HWP files, you just need to download this viewer right here,


Then follow these steps! (Click the photos for a larger and clearer view)

1. Go to the website: http://www.hancom.co.kr/downLoad.downPU.do?mcd=002

2. Click number 2!

3. After opening option number 2, you will find a file named “HOfficeViewer2010SE.exe”. Click that and start downloading the program.

4. Wait for it to download, it is a 125 MB application.

5. After downloading, run the program to start extraction and installation.

5. After extracting the program, installation proper will start.

Click NEXT

Check if you agree to the terms and conditions then click NEXT!

 Check on the options you prefer to download. Hancom Office Hanword enables you to view .hwp files! Don’t forget to check that box!

Wait for the installation to finish.

6. Click finish to end the installation process!

You have the option to set NAVER as your homepage. (NAVER is like the Yahoo! or Google of Koreans) 

7. You can finally open those .hwp files and it will look like this.
