I am looking for an open source program that can perform graphemic conversions from English to Korean.

E.g. if given as input "Francky" it should return something similar to "프랭키", which in Korean sounds similar to Francky. The meaning doesn't matter, the only goal is to keep the pronunciation as similar as possible.

Any code license is fine.

    @Timmy Yes, thanks, actually your link does seem to be open source: code.google.com/p/conv2kr :) – Franck Dernoncourt Oct 21 '14 at 13:06

    I should have read the page more thoroughly. I'll make it an answer – Tymric Oct 21 '14 at 14:08

I found this tool: Hong's Hangul Conversion Tools. It converts text from English to Korean and vice versa through transliteration dictionaries. It is indeed open source as mentioned in the comments on the OP, and the code is licensed under GPLv3.

Here is an example:
