Is it Gimchi or Kimchi?

According to the Korean government romanization rules it's Gimchi. https://www.korean.go.kr/front_eng/roman/roman_01.do

Literally no one on earth spells it Gimchi.

So why make the rules in the first place if you're just gonna ignore them and do what you want in the world's most intelligent and scientific language.  :rolleyes:
I also have to point out, that well, its not really the fault of hangul that the romanization is that way.

It became an English word decades ago when the spelling was "kimchi". So it remains as such until native English speaking societies start to do otherwise.

"Hyundai" is the old spelling, too. And "taekwondo".

ďTeenagers are especially conscious of how their peers view them. Thatís a major trait of adolescence in general. When they see their friends buy luxury products, itís hard for them to resist imitating them, even if itís financially burdensome.Ē

ďThe public used to not recognize K-pop idols as real musicians and didnít take them seriously. Their image was not high-end enough for luxury brands. But now the status of idols has changed. Their popularity reaches global audiences and wields immense influence on their fans, who are mostly teenagers. Teen fans will buy a product solely because their favorite idol promotes it."

F me sideways, my school has teacher's clubs (that's normal, we all do) but GOOD GOD, there is a club that is a band. The male teachers.

They practice in the room above my office every Friday and they know ONE SONG. I think they wrote it, which is cool, but I hear it 15 times in a row EVERY Friday. F me.
