Dear KS list members:

Thanks also to Michael Duffy for his comments, also touched on by Gari 
Ledyard.  I have indeed seen "sing-kieh" in print media from Hong Kong.

Regarding Don Baker's comments on jangnal, this too is interesting.  Of 
course, many small-town markets still follow a 5-day system today.  Joongang 
Atlas's 2003 edition of the _Han'guk Toro Chido_ devotes two full pages to a 
list of country markets, market days being indicated by a number (1/6, 2/7, 
3/8, 4/9, or 5/10).  The Ministry of Construction and Transportation's Korea 
Land Portal also has lists of market days online, accessible from
