FWIW, somebody mentioned this on the Langcom list as a constructed language. This is NOT a constructed language. It is the real language spoken on Jeju Island in Korea, usually classified as a dialect. There are Wikipedia articles on it.

English: Korean Wikipedia uses Standard Language (표준어) of S. Korea and Culture Language (문화어) of N. Korea. However, this wikipedia will use Jeju dialect or language. Jeju dialect is very different from other Korean dialects (including Seoul and Pyongyang dialects). Therefore Jeju people use archaic hangul letter, 'ㆍ' (arae-a) and 'ᅟᆢ' (ssang-arae-a).
日本語: 韓国の「標準語」(ソウル方言基準)と北朝鮮の「文化語」(平壌方言基準)が主とする朝鮮(韓国)語ウィキペディアと違うように、このウィキペディアは済州方言で編纂されます。済州方言はその他の朝鮮(韓国)語の方言たちと非常に違って、「ㆍ」(アレア)と「ᅟᆢ」(双アレア)のような古ハングルが使用される特徴があります。
한국어: 대한민국 표준어(서울 방언 기준)와 조선민주주의인민공화국 문화어(평양 방언 기준) 위주인 한국어 위키백과와 달리, 이 위키백과는 제주 방언으로 편찬되는 위키백과입니다. 제주 방언은 한국어의 여타 방언과 많이 달라서 'ㆍ'(아래아)와 'ᅟᆢ'(쌍아래아)와 같은 옛한글이 사용되는 특징이 있습니다.

Arguments in favour

Arguments against

There is no ISO 639 code for Jeju is there ? GerardM 06:57, 12 August 2007 (UTC)[reply]

Jeju language/dialect doesn't have its own language code like Ryukyuan languages. But the region "Jeju Special Autonomous Province" has its own ISO 3166-2:KR code "KR-49". Yes0song 12:55, 15 August 2007 (UTC)[reply]
Ryukyuan languages have their own separate codes -- Amami, for example, is ryn. I would strongly support this request if there are native speakers to support it. --Node ue 23:09, 6 September 2007 (UTC)[reply]
ISO-3166 is not a language code. GerardM 20:56, 12 December 2007 (UTC)[reply]
The last discussion was about 9 years ago, but now there is ISO code for Jeju language, which is jje. --고솜 (talk) 15:10, 25 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
@고솜: If you're still interesting on it, feel free to create the 2nd request. --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 02:51, 31 December 2017 (UTC)[reply]
