I'm using FontForge to convert otf fonts to ttf, it works fine if I'm working with "Latin/English type characters" but when I'm working with Korean the resulting ttf includes none of the characters (seems as if it only tries to convert Latin/English) and obviously the resulting filesize is close to zero.

How can I tell FontForge to work with Korean characters instead of Latin/English?

The Process

fontforge -script ttf.pe

ttf.pe

Open("SourceHanSansKR-Bold.otf")
Generate("output/SourceHanSansKR-Bold.ttf")

Open("SourceHanSansKR-ExtraLight.otf")
Generate("output/SourceHanSansKR-ExtraLight.ttf")

Open("SourceHanSansKR-Heavy.otf")
Generate("output/SourceHanSansKR-Heavy.ttf")

Open("SourceHanSansKR-Light.otf")
Generate("output/SourceHanSansKR-Light.ttf")

Open("SourceHanSansKR-Medium.otf")
Generate("output/SourceHanSansKR-Medium.ttf")

Open("SourceHanSansKR-Normal.otf")
Generate("output/SourceHanSansKR-Normal.ttf")

Open("SourceHanSansKR-Regular.otf")
Generate("output/SourceHanSansKR-Regular.ttf")

Font URL/Link

It's called "Adobe Source Han Sans Subset OTF - Korean OpenType/CFF font" and I downloaded it from the Arch Linux repo:
