Try Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Revised_Romanization_of_Korean

or the Ministry of Culture and Tourism promulgating document website:


but be aware that the system, deliberately, fails to deal with how names should be standardized and, of course, both MR and the ROK systems which claim to be based on transcribing pronunciation rather than transcribing letters, fail to account for regional pronunciation differences and ignore such things as North Korean initial [riul] in dealing with North Korean names.  There are also issues about spacing, hyphenation, etc., which have yet to be satisfactorily resolved.  Good luck!
