The instructions are indeed for Windows users, but if you know how to use the Mac shell you can also simply use tab2mobi.py to convert your tab-delimited file to a dictionary.

The command is: python tab2opf.py DICTIONARY.tab
If the source file is utf-8 encoded add -utf: python tab2opf.py -utf DICTIONARY.tab
(Obviously, you'll have to replace DICTIONARY.tab with the name of your tab-delimited Korean-English text file, which should be utf-8 encoded.)

This will generate Kindle source files that you'll need to compile by opening the .opf file with KindlePreviewer.
Great, thanks for all the help! I'm going to try to figure this out when I have some time.
