Since the program cannot handle Unicode (yet...), how should we handle contributing titles in non-Roman alphabets? I am buying the Blu-ray set of 별에서 온 그대 (Byeol-eseo on geudae = You Come From the Stars, commonly known in English as My Love From Another Star)... which should be used for the title?

What you enter depends on the locality in which your purchase was released.

If it's a US release, enter the title in Roman alphabet from the front cover in the Title field and use the Original Title field to enter a transcription of the oriental-language title.

If it's an oriental release, enter a transcription of the oriental title in the Title field.

I'm aware that there may be different transcriptions of titles in non-Roman alphabets. There aren't any fixed rules on which to use. I'd suggest using the most popular transcription method, if there is one.

I had planned to use Byeol-eseo on geudae as the title since it is a Korean-locality release. (That is the official Revised Romanization of 별에서 온 그대.)

Yes, then that's what I would enter in the Title field.
