Is this subtitle file salvageable?

Attached is a zip file with a .smi subtitle file. When I play the matching .mkv file with the VLC player it plays the video just fine, but the subtitles are garbage characters. Even the timing of the garbled subtitles seem to be correct, its just the actual characters that are incorrect.
<SYNC Start=25000><P Class=EGCC>&nbsp;
<SYNC Start=114000><P Class=EGCC>

선고: 채권위조
<SYNC Start=115906><P Class=EGCC>
혐의: *폐 위조
When I open the .smi file with notepad, everything but the actual subtitles are readable. There is even a reference to English in the file.
<TITLE>Subtitle file created with Subtitle Converter v2.0</TITLE>
<STYLE TYPE="text/css">
P { margin-left:8pt; margin-right:8pt; margin-bottom:2pt;
    margin-top:2pt; font-size:20pt; text-align:center;
    font-family:arial, sans-serif; font-weight:normal; color:white;
.EGCC { Name:English; lang:en-EN; SAMIType:CC; }
All I have are the .mkv and .smi files, not the original source these files were created from.

I guess my questions are:

Does the garbage characters translate to English characters?
Is this file salvageable without the original source?
If so, any ideas what I can do?
Also where can I get Subtitle Converter v2.0? Might it help me make the subtitles readable? When I used google to search for it, I could not find it.

I didn't attach the .mkv file because its too big. If you need it, contact me and we'll see how we transfer it.
