# Integrate Noto Serif KR into a Flutter app

I wanted to try out google_fonts and use it to display beautiful text in Korean. It was harder than the doc said.

I started according to the instructions at https://pub.dev/packages/google_fonts, adding the dependency to my pubspec.yaml, then using one of its predefined methods:

Text(
'음악',
),


It worked with latin letters but not with Korean hangul. So I tried with a Locale

Text(
'음악',
),


Didn't work either. Looking at the Google Fonts page for the font, the title is "Noto Serif KR", so I tried passing that String instead:

Text(
'음악',

Since I had downloaded the KR family, the font filename was NotoSerifKR-[font weight].otf. I tried running it again. No luck. So my guess is that it won't look for localized fonts even if it's hosted. So I renamed my file to NotoSerif-[font weight].otf. And finally, it worked!
