I agree wholeheartedly with Prof. David McCann's comment.

The comments on the question of romanization has so far run heavily against 
the new system proposed by the S. Korean government. I wonder if anyone is 
for the new system. It would be enlightening to hear from those who are for 
the new system, especially if a few of the scholars who helped to formulate 
the new scheme could step up to the plate explain why they are for it.Granted 
that most of us are used to the M-R system, still for myself, bi for rain, pi 
for blood as well as eo and eu instead of the diacrtical marks seem 
improvements on certain aspects of the old system
