Illustrator knows I have a font but refuses to select it


I need to use a specific font (Nanum Gothic Extra Bold) for a certain project. Illustrator knows I have the font: If I start typing the name in, it autocompletes. But once I hit return, it selects a different font. And the font doesn't appear on the list.

What's going wrong and how can I get access to this font?

I realize this is years old now but I thought I'd provide an insight. I work on a PC and needed to use that font (nanungothic) within Illustrator CS5 as well. Would show up when I typed it into the window but not convert the font.

I opened up the preferences and under the Type tab, ticked Show asian options and Show font names in English.

Showed up after that in regular, bold, and extra bold. Hope this helps anyone in the future.
