Dear list,

I have received this request, but unfortunately can answer nothing but that
there has not been any reaction yet. So here is the second try; any commets
are highly appreciated.

>Dear Mr Frank/Rudiger,

>Studies list.  Did you ever get any replies?  If so, I would be very
>grateful if you could pass anything you found on.
>        Perhaps I should say that I have just started teaching a short (and
>very elementary) course on Korean Politics - hence my interest.  I have
>accumulated my own partial listings of factions (in a very unsystematic
>way); but I would share your interest in seeing a comprehensive listing
>with, if possible, explanations of what the factions are (and why).
>        Many thanks - and sorry for piggy-backing on your effort,
>                                Pete Morriss
