Update Korean fonts in the default config

Since the changes in bug 42423, several new Hangul (Korean) fonts has been released under Free and Open Source licenses. They are considered better than old NanumGothic fonts as the default Korean sans-serif/serif/monospace.

So I propose to change the default config:

- Noto Sans CJK KR and NanumBarunGothic are preferred to NanumGothic as sans.
- Noto Sans Mono CJK KR and D2Coding are preferred to NanumGothicCoding as monospace.
- Remove some Korean fonts, which are not typewriter style ones, from monospace.
