❖ The First Tale ❖
Jeju Island’s Jin-guktae 
Who ever can this beautiful girl that the boy met be?

Once upon a time, a boy was on his way back home from studying at an institute when he
met a charming girl who lived in a giwa-roofed house. He fell in love with her at first sight.

For several days, the boy and girl played a game where they would
pass an orb between them with a kiss.

However, the boy’s health deteriorated day by day.

The headmaster who heard about the incident told him to swallow the orb.

So the next day, the boy swallowed the orb,

and the girl transformed into a fox with many tails.

The boy barely managed to escape from the fox!

In the end, the boy became a skilled doctor who could heal any kind of disease,
thanks to the fox orb with mystical powers.

❖ The Second Tale ❖
Fox Sister 

What the Brothers Saw

Once, a married couple with only sons, three of them, finally gave birth to a daughter.

After a few years, the brothers saw their little sister transforming
into a fox every night and eating the livers of cows and chickens!

The brothers told their parents what they saw.

However, the parents were furious that they would badmouth
their daughter, and kicked them out the house.

Years passed, and the eldest son got three Gourd Bottles of different colors:
white, red and blue, each with a mysterious power.

He went back home with the bottles.

Then, he followed his sister, and when she was alone, she transformed into a fox.

The eldest son defeated his sister by throwing all of the gourd bottles.
