New Word: “Romangul”

I submitted an entry to Urban Dictionary a while ago, in attempt to popularize my word for the English “romanization” of the Korean “hangul” script, as “Romangul”.. see the newly-approved entry here.

As many of us fans of Asian Pop know, there is already a word for the version of Japanese lyrics turned into roman lettering, called “romaji” which combines “romanize” and the Japanese “kanji” but none seemed to exist for the Korean hangul, so romangul only seemed natural.

Also natural, was my insistence to include a reference to SNSD, my favorite Korean girl-pop group =P
