So, that underline is equivalent with Arabic's "sukun", isn't it?

Well, not really, since "eu" is an actual vowel that is pronounced and can appear in the beginning and middle of a syllable. But I guess it does serve a similar role for transliteration purposes. I don't know whether or not it's common among Koreans to drop it from pronunciation when saying loanwords or foreign proper names. The Japanese u that serves a similar function practically disappears between voiceless consonants and at the end of the word after a devoiced consonant, but that happens in native Japanese words too and has nothing to do with attempting to pronounce foreign words accurately.
