We have had trouble getting results for certain Korean and Japanese
addresses. Take the addresses below as example, when I run a query on
it a get a lot of garbled characters.

Korea: 222.96.17.158
Japan: 218.43.43.43

What can I do to get readable whois answer for those address types?
They work perfectly fine with my OS X whois command line tool.

The issue is a combination of two elements:

  1. the whois.nic.ad.jp server responds with a non-utf8 string unless the /e argument is supplied. The library doesn't seem to force that option, and this is a bug.
  2. the library currently doesn't fully support non-utf8 responses. This is a feature already in our roadmap (#11)
