Prof. Shim Jae-Ki of Seoul National University and Prof. Lee In-Bok of Sookmyung Women`s University, the husband-and-wife team that leads the Korean literature circle, will soon return to the classroom as students. The couple passed the entrance examination for transfer students at Kkottongnae Hyundo University of Social Welfare and plan to take third-year-level classes in the society welfare department beginning this semester.

Since 1989, Shim and Lee have run the ``Nazareth Sacred House,`` a shelter for unwed mothers and victims of domestic violence.
