If you go to the Index of Korean Literature Today that is housed at my address (I made it)
http://www.sogang.ac.kr/~anthony/klt/KLTIndex.htm you will find quite a lot of (well)
translated works not only listed but, in many cases, with links to online texts. The Index not
only lists works published in KLT, it also includes a link to the massive (and unwieldy) KCAF
database, to the Index of Korea Journal where many translation have been published, and to a
list of short stories published in collections (I would be glad to expand this last item, if
members could provide tables of contents) and more...
The most complete printed index to translations is that published in 1998 under the English
title "Bibliographies of Korean Literature in Foreign Languages" (details in a page linked to
the above KLT Index) and I have been urging the KLTI to put it online and maintain it and they
have made positive sounds although nothing is as yet available.
The KLTI (aka LTI Korea) Newsletter dated 2001 (winter) includes a list of all the books of
translated Korean literature (all languages) that it knows of published since (I think) 1980,
many with KCAF support.
Articles can best be found using the Harvard Korean Studies Bibliography, I think.
Modesty obliges me to point to the list of the translations I myself have been guilty of, and
the various 'articles' I have published, available at
