    I noticed that I have both Korean and Japanese IME on my Nexus 7 but am having issues removing them. Any help would be appreciated.

    Yea, they are annoying. After the update to the Pinyin IME, there is now an actual app icon in the app drawer for it too, which makes it even more annoying. There has to be way to uninstall these if we don't need them...

    If rooted just go into system/app and delete or rename them.

    For non-rooted users:
    Go to Settings - Apps - scroll to the ALL category - go to the apps (Google Korean Keyboard & Google Pinyin) - click force stop and clear any data/cache as well - click disable and wallahhhhh - check just to make sure the processes are not running for peace of mind

    P.s. you may also have to roll back the previous update before it will let you click the ignore button

    I spoke to a Google rep about this today. He said it was pushed out to everyone as they had been receiving tremendous demand - what they felt was sufficient to warrant it being in by default. Of course, he couldn't provide any insight as to why we aren't able to remove it...

    A lot of older "tech disabled" asians don't know how to setup and use their phones. So when they don't see their "language" available they kind of don't know what to do. If they have people like us around they help them install the IME, but if they don't they just contact the manufacturer. I guess there were a lot of requests t have it included, and usually the language/apps included are not uninstallable. Although you can disable them.

    I finally tried to remove but disable was the only option available. It did get rid of the update request so I am happy.

    There's an app, Root Unistaller that deletes, also NoBloat.

    Root required for both.
