None of the above: they are all shapes used for printed characters, just like lowercase "a" or "g" of, say, Times Roman (see the picture here).

For handwriting, see the picture below. (Stolen from here.)

한글 획순

  • Is this a standard? I personally have different stroke orders for ㅌ and ㅍ. Mar 22, 2018 at 16:53
  • Not sure if there's an official standard, but this is exactly how I learned it at school.

The first and second can be frequently seen in korean web page. And the third is used by calligrapher. With a large brush, they write with third way in a big paper frequently. In further, some people write with the third way in a note. Usually, almost people use the way in jick's answer.
