Some of them are for sure. The Tale of Chunhyang, say, is a hugely popular tale -- there's an English novel (out-of-print), manga, and two movie adaptations of it (1961 and 2000) .

excellent - I had not looked - was just overwhelmed in the middle of the night with desire to read this stuff and wished fervently that I could at least see it in English! And as I mentioned to you... was also just full of that frustrated feeling I often get - as I considered how many times I have heard people spout off pompously about the Enlightenment or the french revolution or whatever and how unique and superior it is when actually all they are doing is exposing their massive ignorance of the rest of the world and its history.

I will add that after writing this perhaps in the middle of the night while my sleeping pill was kicking in, I ordered a bunch of books online and I'm reading one of them now. "Korean Sketches" by James S. Gale, and it is one of the most uninspiring bits of racist colonialist writing ever. Unfunny snarks about poor people and schizophrenic stances of how Koreans are lazy and dirty and then the next page on how hard the "coolies" are working. And then constant making-fun-of anyone who is gentlemanly or scholarly or educated. It barely has any interesting details and is all Ironic Posing! So here is a hearty un-recommendation for James S. Gale. Who even bothered to go to the effort to print this? I'm saying this as a person who LOVES to read obnoxious colonialisty travel journals, Freya Stark, Mary Kingsley, etc. This is a boring one. Thumbs down on James S. Gale's 1890 travels.

Greetings from Seoul. Pity that more Korean classics are not in English. But we're working on it. Try Memoirs of a Korean Queen by Lady Hong, 1985 remaindered thru Amazon. A beautiful translation from Sino-Korean and a wonderful story. Pak Chiwon's Jehol Diary should be in print in about 6-9 months time - a difficult translation task, thankfully approaching final stages.
