(Korean language) Essay on cursing

Warning: "words of affect" below; if they were in my own language, I might not have them here, but in a foreign language, even when knowing that they are words that don't leave people cold, they don't move me that much. And this post is solely for the purpose of education. (This is hunjangûi karûch'im, right?)

Ended up on a scholarly-looking essay on cursing in Korean when googling for cannot remember what. I can't find the author of the essay, but he or she has apparently given a lot of thought on the subject.
Part one.
Part two.
Addition. These sites seem to open mostly in non-Korean coding so that the characters don't show. Changing the browser language coding to Korean should do.

Below are the chapter titles of the essay.

1. 序論(서론)
2. 욕의 基本(기본)
3. "좆"이 사용된 욕
4. "씹"이 사용된 욕
5. 身體(신체)에 관한 욕
6. 출생 및 사망에 관한 욕.
7. 조선 시대 刑罰(형벌)이 사용되어진 욕.
8. 욕 속의 개(犬).
9. 동물이 쓰이는 욕.
10. 직업에 관한 욕.
11. 그 밖의 욕.
12. 맺음말.
I'll finish with a good piece of teaching:

自知(자지)면 晩知(만지)라, 補知(보지)면 早知(조지)라...
--> 스스로 알면 늦게 알 것이요, 도와줘서 알면 일찍 안다. 컨닝을 합리화시킨 말.

It's funny--I can read the Hangul script on your (and most) websites, but can't read the script at the cursing sites. Wonder what the deal is?
