Tale of the Songakshi 
Reference 1: Legend of Dodeoksan Moutain


❖ Reference Story  ❖
Legend of Dodeoksan Moutain 

~ The Marriage of the Deceased Daughter and the Potter!? ~  

Once upon a time, in a distant village, the daughter of a wealthy family fell ill and passed away. 

The village’s mudang (shaman) revealed a startling truth: the departed soul of the daughter had transformed into a virgin ghost and if they didn't resolve her resentment, something terrible would happen.

Under the master's orders, workers kidnapped a humble potter to be the groom, 

even though he was already married. 

Helpless, the potter went through a wedding ceremony with the deceased woman 

The next day, he received a great fortune as a reward 

and set out on the journey back home. 

While on his way home, the deceased woman appeared in the potter's dream and expressed gratitude for resolving her resentment.  

Tale of the Golden Pig King 

Reference 1: Legend of Golden Pig


❖ Reference Story  ❖
Legend of Golden Pig 
~Where did the wife disappear to?~  

In a small village, whenever a new satto (governor) was appointed, their wife would inexplicably vanish. 

To solve the mystery, the wise satto devised a plan. 

He discreetly attached a string to his wife's clothing. 

Soon enough, his wife disappeared as well. 

Following the string, the satto discovered a cave 

where a golden pig hid his wife away. 

Realizing that the golden pig was most afraid of deer hide,  

the satto exploited this weakness, slaying the pig and safely rescuing his wife.  


❖  Reference Story #1 ❖ 
Dokkebi's Bat
~The Bat That the Younger Brother Found is…!?~

There were two brothers, one rich and the other poor.

One day, the younger brother went to the mountains to gather firewood.

While taking a rest in a mountain hut,

suddenly, he encountered a group of Dokkebi.

Startled, the younger brother accidentally cracked open the acorn he had been chewing, making a loud noise.

Frightened by the sound, the Dokkebi ran away in a panic. 

They left behind a bat, which could create anything. With this newfound power, the younger brother became wealthy.

The greedy older brother tried the same, 

but he was caught by the Dokkebi, who never fall for the same trick twice.

❖ Reference Story #2 ❖ 
Dokkebi's Cap
~Cap to Conceal One's Appearance~

There was a person who happened upon a cap that could conceal their appearance.

With this cap, they roamed around the village, using it to steal others' belongings. 

However, one day, a part of the cap caught fire from a passerby's smoking pipe.

Their wife found a red cloth and stitched the cap with it.

The villagers realized that when the red cloth scrap floated in the air, something would go missing.

Eventually, the villagers, anticipating the appearance of the red cloth, ambushed the thief.

They forcefully removed the cap, revealing the thief's true form, and gave them a good beating.
