Actually this new naming scheme was planned from 1996, and the
implementation started in 2006. The old address will be dropped in
2012 and only the new one will be used. Well, at least the law 
says so, but I am almost sure it will be suspended.
Google "도로명주소" or "새주소" with your area name, you might find online
maps with the new road names, usually provided by local governments.
 the law called "대한민국 도로명주소 등 표기에 관한 법률"
 like this for Seoul, http://address.seoul.go.kr/MAP/
