Yes, you can use the 'swap' command.

Look at the text at the bottom of the Korean Chess Preset page:

= = =

To swap Elephants and Horses at the beginning of the game, use the swap command. For example, this will swap Elephants and Horses on both sides for Red, then move an Elephant. Follow each swap command with a semicolon, and use coordinates for its arguments. Use it only before your first move.

swap b1 c1; swap g1 h1; E b1-d4
