Let's name systems:

desktop: Your X terminal (I.E. you run X server and keyboard is connected)
laptop: Your remote system

keyboard = desktop ..ssh-connection.. laptop = all your data and services

Normal configuration start ibus-daemon on desktop.  Sure, unless you run
ibus-daemon where X clients are running (=laptop), they get no Korean
input.  Afterall, ibus is just another X clients.  What you did is
exactly to run ibus-daemon on laptop.  You can kill your ibus on desktop
to avoid duplicate panels.

(I am not 100% sure but this is my quick response.  Exvuse me.)

Anyway, all default configuration is for typical desktop system.  If you
can come up with better solution, let us know.  Basically, this is not a
bug on software.  This is feature request.  Thus wishlist.
