I made a new hangul romaja input table:

This is a script which generated a table above:

There is a table for hangul romaja input already:
But this does not cover full unicode range of hangul.

So I made new version which cover full hangul unicode range.
And there are some differences in key sequences.

1. Double consonant can be inputed by pressing same key twice.
ex) gg -> ㄲ
    dd -> ㄸ
    ss -> ㅆ
    jj -> ㅉ

2. Vowel sequences are more intuitive
    ㅗ + ㅏ = ㅘ so 'oa' produce 'ㅘ', 'wa' also changed to 'ㅘ'
    ㅜ + ㅓ = ㅝ so 'ueo' produce 'ㅝ', 'wo' alse changed to 'ㅝ'
    ㅏ + ㅣ = ㅐ so 'ai' produce 'ㅐ'

3. 'r' is only used for Initial consonant and not trailing consonant.
And 'l' is used for trailing consonant only.

Key sequence table:
