WPML is using the "ko" language code for Korean by default.

According to ISO 639-1 Language Codes, the recognized language code for Korean is "ko"

List of ISO codes:

With WPML you do have the ability to add a custom language in which you can set the language code to your desired one.

Go to WPML->Languages->Edit Languages->Add a new language using the "kr" language code.

NOTE: when creating a new custom language you cannot use a default locale being used by another language.

If you wish to use the default locale "ko_KR" , I recommend changing the default locale of the default WPML Korean language to "kor" for example and then saving.

After this change, you can proceed to now add your new custom Korean language with the "kr" language code and "ko_KR" default locale.
