While we're at it:
SRPG - strategy RPG
ARPG - action RPG

Never realized how many RPG abbreviations we have. :P Man, now I wanna play one..

PRPG - although not as popular as the others, but ive seen it used a few times on different forums, stand for Puzzle RPG

FPRPG - same in the popularity dept, but ive seen this mainly in gamespot and gamefaqs before, stands for First Person RPG.

Japanese rpgs feature turn based combat with menu operations for attack/skills/items/etc; they often feature birds eye view world exploration.

Korean rpgs are action oriented arcade style button mashers usually also with a birds eye view perspective and "fetch quests." Interchangeable with action rpg.
