Internal WordPress engine simply creates permalink based on title. Non-latin characters are encoded based on RFC 1738(or its PHP implementation as urlencode function) and it produces long, non-readable URL look a like . This encoded URL still works and can be decoded by browsers. It is very hard to read specially all the stats uses URL as a key. To prevent this, simply change the suggested permalink all the time or uses digit form like /?p=123. But if you want not to be bothered, this plugin can be a solution for Roman presentation as Korean pronounciation.

Based on code of the np4v(Vietnameses version of this plugin) from Quang Anh Do. Korean-Roman presentation table is adopted from Thanks bhleejw.
