조용 comes from 從容, but many borrowed words in Korean were nativized in some way over the centuries. As such, there is no 漢字 form for this. The official reading for 從容 is 종용 in modern days.
Similarly, 김치 which was 딤ᄎᆡ and 팀ᄎᆡ (from 沈菜) changed when it became trendy to depalatalize ㅈㅉㅊ sounds.
There’s a whole stock of words with hidden Chinese origins, some of which are so altered they are no longer recognized as such.
