Have a PDF file dated '97 of around 5/6mb if your email will take it! or could send the ten pages of badges and uniforms as separate attachments.
Don't expect great detail in the uniforms, small and a little blurred.

Current Korean Army Uniforms

Hi There,
Not sure if this is exactly what you are looking for but it should give you a start.

This would be the Service Uniform, there would be differences for the Ceremonial and Combat uniforms but I haven't found images of those yet.
The rank structure is similar to the Soviet Union system of shoulder boards and lapel patches. The photos shown starting from
Top left : - Lieutenant Colonel , I haven't confirmed it yet but I undertsand the badge on the lapel patch signifies that he is with the Border Guard unit.
Top right : - Colonel. Note red piping on the top of his cap and the different lapel patches.
Bottom Left : - Senior Sergeant, Border Guard unit. His rank is shown on the lapel patches.
Bottom right : - Two Generals of different rank. Note the gold braid cap strap.
I do not know what unit the woman in the centre is or what rank she has on her shoulders.

The little pin representing the leader of the country, Kim Il Sung, is a kind of loyalty support item as every officer is required to display it on their uniforms. Note that the Senior Sergeant is not wearing one.

Hope this helps,
Best Regards,
Les
