Dear Dr. Wegehaupt,

Thank you for the list of publications by Kim Soyoung. I have since
searched the Library of Congress, Barnes and Noble, NACSIS Webcat, and
HOLLIS homepages for Kim Soyoung and the titles below. No hits emerged,
though I no doubt missed them in my searches.

If the books are in Korean, might you provide the romanized titles (and
publishers, too)?  Thank you.

Ken Robinson
