The KSS has published a new edition of the KSS magazine, Korean Philately, the second KP of 2020. Just as was the case with issue no. 1 of this year you can own a full-colour magazine-style printed hard-copy version of this KP! As a member you can download this edition of Korean Philately for free as a PDF.
How to download?
This edition of Korean Philately can, just like all previous editions/issues, be downloaded from the KSS website. In case you just can’t wait to download it, here is the direct download link for you as a member:

The KP used to be sent to KSS members as part of their membership. Given present day costs of printing and sending hard-copy editions of magazines and books this would not be a viable option any longer. This is especially true because of the the fact that KSS membership is currently 100% for free.
If you would like to order a printed copy, you can find the two print versions of Korean Philately magazine on the KSS profile at Blurb.com:

Why “Vol. 56” and not “Vol. 54”?
This is where I must make a small confession: when creating issue 1 of 2020 I hadn’t looked at the KP archive. (Yes, I know, stupid of me.) Turns out the KSS had already published a complete volume 54 (four issues) and even started on a volume 55 back in 2013. Which is why this is volume 56, not 54. However, since issue 1 has been ordered by many people already (at this time almost 40 printed-on-demand KP’s have been sold through Blurb!) changing the volume/issue number didn’t seem like a good idea.
