Dear Tommy,
Hi we have never met but here are some people you can write to:

Clark Sorenson at U W
and Roger Janelli ( They did fieldwork in villages in the 1970s and so will know) 
Also Check Vincent Brandt's ethnographies and Eugene Knez
of Smithsonian ( has died already)
If you read Japanese, you can look at the earliest ethnographies of Imamura Chijun
dating to 1914 which I believe is the earliest comprehensive ethnography of Chosen

The term is still  used on Cheju among geographers (notably in the 제주도지 [2006]) and for tourism reasons. I was wondering if anyone knows when this term came into being and how long has it been used in Korea. Also, are there any particular books or articles (in Korean or in English) on the topic?
