Once upon a time, there lived a poor woodcutter.
One day, he helpd a deer who was being chased by a hunter.
The deer felt bad for the poor woodcutter, too poor to ever marry,
It told him about the bathing place of the celestial maidens.
The deer said that if he stole one of the winged gowns the maidens took off while bathing, that maiden wouldn‘t be able to return to the sky,
and the woodcutter could offer her his home.
The woodcutter, having stolen the neatly folded winged-gown of the celestial maiden, approached her and proposed as the deer had suggested.
The maiden accepted the woodcutter’s proposal,
and went to live with him.
The maiden always lonnged to return home, but the deer had cautioned the woodcutter to never speak about the stolen winged-gown until they had their third child.
One day, after their second child was born,
the woodcutter's guilt finally got to him and he returned the gown to her.
The maiden flew off with their two children, never to return again.
Once upon a time, in an undersea kingdom, there was a dragon king who was very sick. In his search for a remedy for his illness, he found a remarkable physician who told him that consuming the liver of a hare would surely bring back his failing health.
The dragon king pondered,
"How can I get my hands on the liver of a hare that lives on land?"
With great courage, a turtle proclaimed,
"I will venture onto the land myself!” and set off on their journey.
Upon encountering a hare, the turtle promised them a prestigious position in the undersea kingdom. Fooled by the turtle’s persuasive words, the rabbit eagerly descended to the dragon palace.
Quickly realizing that they had been tricked, the rabbit stood before the dragon king and bravely declared,
“I’ve left my liver behind on dry land!”
The king and turtle foolishly agreed to bring the rabbit back up to the land once again
Seizing the opportunity, the rabbit escaped into the distant forest,
never to be seen again!
In the heart of a village, an elderly couple who had longed for a child finally welcomed a son, but he was no ordinary child – he was a serpent baby!
When the three sisters from the neighboring houses came to see the child, it was only the youngest among them who found him to be beautiful.
The serpent ended up eventually marrying the youngest sister.
On the first night, as the serpent shed its skin, a handsome, scholarly Seonbi emerged from within!
However, consumed by jealousy, the two elder sisters decide to set fire to the serpent's shed skin.
Believing his wife to be the one who did such a heinous act, the seonbi sorrowfully left her.
However, by enduring numerous moments and numerous trials, the wife managed to work out the misunderstanding,
and they were reunited once again, living happily ever after.

Upon realizing that their seventh child, Princess Bari, was also a daughter, they decided to abandon her.
