GookRule is Gook + Rule (룰)
A slang combining the words “Gookmin (citizen)” and “rule,” it is used to refer to the “rules that are not formally established, but are universally accepted.”
In a word, it is the rule that people have an implicit agreement, even if they don’t explicitly say so. It was first used in games.
