Weird symbols in some apps

In two or three of my phone apps, some buttons have really weird symbols.


  • In a chess game app, the "+" symbol to start a game, is a V. Other buttons like the ones for resign (I forgot what it's supposed to be) and to go back(<)/forward(>) through previous moves appear as: R, ..(two dots), and .(one dot)

  • A to do list app has the following symbols where the notification and settings buttons should be: l, |, Z.

I'm not sure when this first happened, but I've tried clearing the cache, clearing the data, and restarting my phone. I've also tried uninstalling the apps. This may have happened when I switched phones a year ago and transferred my apps, but I'm not positive on that. Another possibility is something went wrong when changing between languages, because I periodically switch between Korean & English.

Any ideas on how to fix this?
