Basically only 14 u.p.s are the ‘real’ phonetic symbols in HMJ phonetics.

  HMJ phonetics uses several phonetic symbols not to belong to u.p.s. like [ㅎ](a strengthened form of [ㅇ]) or [ㅌ](= [ㄷ] + [ㅎ]). But basically only 14 u.p.s. are the ‘real’ phonetic symbols in HMJ phonetics because those are used for convenience.
