      Description

      Malgun Gothic and Malgun Gothic Semilight should not be included in QFontDatabase::families for SimplifiedChinese nor TraditionalChinese.

      Attempting to use it as a Chinese font results in a mix of two fonts being used (see uploaded file MalgunGothicFontTestSimplifiedChinese.html)

      For the sentence 你为什么那么做?
      __什_那_做? shows as regular sans from Malgun Gothic
      你为_么_么_ shows as anything from thin to black sans or serif from a fallback font{{}}

      Does Malgun Gothic have at least one glyph within the chinese unicode block? Yes.

      Does Malgun Gothic support the Chinese language? No. You can't even say "你好" (hello)
