I could be off by a year. The main formal event I have in mind was a
Japan-Korean friendship conference held at Shimane prefectural
university, which I though was in 1998, but perhaps it was later than
that. Around that time, a few members of the committee, most of whose
names I can't remember (but one was the younger brother of Shim
Jae-ryong; I think his name is Shim Jae-gi, or something like that)
came, and in the discussions, I was encouraged to support the new
system. I also met some other members informally in Seoul around that
time. I had previously been using the prior government-supported system,
which used final b/d/g instead of p/t/k.

There are two dictionaries:
(1) Classical Chinese dictionary http://www.buddhism-dict.net/dealt
(2) Buddhist Terms dictionary http://www.buddhism-dict.net/ddb
Most major universities in the West have institutional subscriptions,
but I see that SNU does not.
(http://www.buddhism-dict.net/ddb/subscribing_libraries.html) In that
case, you can do 10 searches a day using "guest" as the user ID, leaving
the password field blank.
