MATLAB incorrectly recognizes UTF-8 Korean character

I am using MATLAB R2015b on Windows 10. OS language is Korean.
I've put the followings in `startup.m`
feature('DefaultCharacterSet','UTF8');
feature('DefaultCharacterSet') % check
slCharacterEncoding('UTF-8');
slCharacterEncoding() % check
When MATLAB start, it says:
ans =
UTF-8
ans =
UTF-8
However, when I open a file coded with UTF-8, Korean characters are incorrectly displayed. On the left, the file is opened in Visual Studio Code, on the right, in MATLAB editor.
One thing is that,
import java.nio.charset.Charset
encoding = Charset.defaultCharset()
says
encoding =
x-windows-949
I think this is a root of the problem. Can I edit such configuration in Java for MATLAB?

I've added the followings in `java.opts` in the same place of `startup.m`, but it seems it does not have an effect.
-Dfile.encoding=UTF-8
-Dclient.encodindg=UTF-8
-Dclient.encoding.override=UTF-8
