So, you did not like my Prussian uncles with their Russian friends?
Never mind.

Here is what you are looking for. (Ross King or German Kim might know 
of newer articles -- but this one you can access online and I think it 
is as detailed as it gets on your topic.)

This is a 10 pages article about Russian advisors and military 
involvement of that time by historian Sergei Volkov from 2003:
Волков С.В. Русские офицеры – исследова
тели Кореи конца XIX – начала XX века // Рос
сийское корееведение. Альманах. Вып 3. М
.: Муравей, 2003. С. 193-202.
I am not sure, but I would wonder if this particular article was not 
translated into Korean. You may want to check.
There is also a book by him that might well include the same:
But for sure are there various pieces published by him in English also 
.... he is the expert on that area.

That is a quick overview.

For further information -- from a conference in Bonn Germany, 2004:
T.M. Simbirtseva, "Russian Materials on the Pre-Modern (till 1920’s) 
history of Russian-Korean Relations: Diplomatic and Social Aspects" -->
