About this book
A representative sampling of Korean stories!
Dragons, ghosts, ogres, tigers, demonic foxes, supernatural spouses and, of course, people with all their human frailties are among the characters revealed perceptions of life and notions about power, money, justice, love and interpersonal relations that, through the ages, have become ingrained in the Korean pysche. Passed on from generation to generation, the tales of ancient Koreans and the creeds and codes by which they lived.

This books is thus a window through which to gain some understanding of present-day Korean culture. It includes fables, anecdotes, fairy tales, pourquoi tales, and tales of the bizarre. Some are charming, some gruesome, and some humorous. Together they provide much insight into the Korean ethos.
