Did your computer fail to open a HWP file? We explain what they are used for and recommend software that we know can open or otherwise handle your .HWP files.
What is a HWP file?
HWP is an acronym for Hangul Word Processor. Files that contain the .hwp file extension normally store documents that have been created by the Korean-based Hangul Word Processor application.
The HWP file format and the Hangul Word Processor were created by the Haansoft Corporation of South Korea to address the needs of those who needed to create computer documents with Korean characters.
HWP files may contain text, document formatting and graphics, much like the DOC files that are created by the popular Microsoft Word application. Unlike Word documents, however, the HWP file format is used primarily to save documents that have been written in the Korean language of Hangul.
