LKL says:

Probably not worth tracking down this collection.Strangely, all the stories apart from Cry of the Harp are also included in my copy of Volume 1 of "The Best Korean Short Stories" - the collection entitled The Cruel City. But as noted in the entry there, I think my copy of that volume my be a rogue edition.The other tales are included in the more generous Choe Cheong-hui collection published by Eastbridge, The Cry of the Harp: Selected Works of Choe Chung-Hui
