[KS] Samguk Yusa readership - translated Samguk Sagi readership

I had seen about the recent Academy of Korean Studies translations for
the Goguryeo and Silla Annals.  They are surely a very important
contribution (I'm particularly interested to see how various rank and
titles have been translated) and no easy task to have completed.

I was planning to try and obtain at least one next time I visit Korea,
but as it has come up, I thought I would ask if there is an effective
and not overly expensive method to order editions from outside of
Korea, directly through AKS perhaps?  Some of the larger online
markets appear finally to offer international shipping, but do so only
through the most expensive (albeit reliable) EMS postal service.

(I'm away for a week so won't be able to reply, in case they are any responses.)
