Thanks to Tony Malone for confirming the name of the translator in his review!

As is often the case with an Asia Publishers publication, not much information is available online, and the book is pretty difficult to buy. You can also find the story translated in Modern Korean Short Stories and The Road to Sampo and Other Korean Short Stories – each of which is hard to track down, too.
