The Art of Mathematics by Sung-Dae Hong is the standard high-school mathematics textbook in South Korea. The series gets new editions and reprints since 1966. Wikipedia has a page for it.

Had it ever been translated into English? I've checked the Library of Congress and Amazon, without success. Maybe there's a manuscript that has not been officially published?

I found a series of textbooks on Amazon entitled Oh Math! with subtitles which seem to match The Art of Mathematics by Hong. These were written by Chris Cho. I can't see too much with the preview, but it seems they are half Korean half English. It might be what you want. At a minimum, take a look:

The English Korean OH! MATH Probability-Statistics textbook

Incidentally, searching "OH! MATH" or "OH MATH" does not help.

    $\begingroup$ I contacted Chris Cho. He told me that The Art of Mathematics and Oh! Math have the same structure because it's the high school math curriculum standardized by the Korean government. He also said Hong's series has not been translated into English. $\endgroup$ – Anton Tarasenko Jun 24 at 9:06
