Have you considered simply using Hangul (with English translation in parentheses), especially since Korean is now easily inserted in English documents?

>> Dear all,
>> By no means advocating a particular romanization system, I would like to know whether American university presses now publish books on Korea using the Revised Romanization system rather than the McCune-Reischauer system. About ten years ago, an American colleague of mine attempted in vain to submit a manuscript using RR, but I wonder if things have changed since then. I would like to have an idea as I'm getting started with a new book project.
