Kyungki/Gyeonggi

Which of the following is the correct spelling for the province that surrounds Seoul...?

Kyungki-do

Gyeonggi-do

All literature I have read in my research of the area uses the latter, though a friend who lives in the province insists on the former.

Thank you in advance for any assistance.

Seoul

1. Re: Kyungki/Gyeonggi

Korean Government changed the Romanization system of Korean

Alphabet 3-4 years ago.

Before we used Kyungki-do,

Now we use Gyeonggi-do.

Both means the same province,

but hopefully recommended the latter now.
