Dragons, ghosts, ogres, tigers, demonic foxes, supernatural spouses and, of course, people with all their human frailties are among the characters that revealed perceptions of life and notions about power, money, justice, love and interpersonal relations that, through the ages, have become ingrained in the Korean psyche. Passed on from generation to generation, the tales of ancient Koreans and the creeds and codes by which they lived. It includes fables, anecdotes, fairy tales, and tales of the bizarre. Some are charming, some gruesome, and some humorous.
