While the idea of "harvesting all the material" from a site using 
such apps as SiteSucker may sound attractive to end users, I can 
tell you that as a maintainer of a few large data sites, the usage 
of such applications on our sites causes considerable headaches, 
clogging up our servers, making it less useful to honest users.

If the webmasters of the Korean Classics set up their site so that 
you can't download the whole thing en masse, they probably had a 
good reason to do so. I suggest that you acknowledge their right to 
manage their site as-is.
