Do there exist any Korean etexts online, such as Samguk Yusa, in plain text format (i.e. not in PDF)? I saw this but I can't tell what is the actual underlying text, it's all intermingled with Chinese.

  • So are you looking specifically for historical texts ? Commented May 2, 2020 at 9:09

    Well... you know, Samguk Yusa is written in Classical Chinese...

  • @LancePollard, would you mind if I show you a platform for free training on this? Commented May 2, 2020 at 23:55
  • @Lance, were you able to find anything? I've been quite curious too Commented Dec 25, 2022 at 13:55

The Wikisource article you mentioned is not intermingled with Chinese. The Chinese part is the original, but they have been translated to Korean. You can just neglect the Chinese part and read the Korean part only. Then the whole contents should be covered.
