Reverting the title back to the "National Assembly of South Korea"[edit]

Why not Gukhoe? Because the "National Assembly" is the official English name of the legislature (see official website: http://korea.na.go.kr ), and Gukhoe, the direct transliteration from Korean language does not convey any meaning to English speakers. --Nudimmud (talk) 01:51, 20 June 2010 (UTC)

Restoring the title to the "National Assembly of South Korea"[edit]

The current title "National Assembly (South Korea)" is awkward - it means that the name of the article can never be linked without being piped. Restoring "National Assembly of South Korea" addresses this problem. The article was moved last September without discussion, but with the explanation "proper term per constitution". I really doubt that the South Korean constitution refers to the assembly as "National Assembly (South Korea)", especially since South Korea calls itself "Republic of Korea". Finally, WP:TITLE says: "the ideal article title resembles titles for similar articles, precisely identifies the subject, and is short, natural, and recognizable." "National Assembly of South Korea" covers all of these principles. Ground Zero | t 15:41, 6 January 2013 (UTC)

  • As there were no objections, I have made the move. Ground Zero | t 03:39, 10 April 2013 (UTC)
