that the old clothbound copy explained the scheme, although it's possible that I'm misremembering. Annoyingly, the Kindle version doesn't include it, so I have to guess at pronunciations based on what I know (or just guess, period). There are two more-or-less standard romanizations for Korean. The first is McCune-Reischauer, a tweaked/revised version of which is used officially by the South Korean government now.

It was translated and published by Korean folklorist Zong In‑Sob, first in Japanese in his Ondoru Yawa, Tokyo, 1927; and later in English in his Folk Tales from Korea, Routledge & Kegan Paul, London, 1952. Another version appears as the title story of The Story Bag: A Collection of Korean Folk Tales, by Kim So‑Un, translated by Setsu Higashi, Tuttle, Tokyo and Rutland, Vermont, 1955. Similar tales of loyal servants have been told throughout Europe, including Faithful John, found in the collection of the Brothers Grimm. The motif of story spirits itself, though, seems to be distinctively. Collected and translated with an introduction by Zŏng In-sŏb. New York: Grove Press, 1953.

These tales present a glimpse of Korean society which is not obscured by the heavy mask of classical tradition. The family ethics of Confucianism appears not as they are enshrined in the Classics, but as they are worked out in the lives of the people, and sometimes of the animals.

I have just started reading this book, so far I find it interesting. It is a very easy read with the tales written to be read and tols - there isn't any extra scholarly input in the tales themselves.

I love his book! It's so hard to find books on Korea that don't talk about the 20th-century war, but that talk about its culture. There are a lot of tale sin the book, plus a great index. Each tale has a heading telling you its origin (Buddhism, for example). I definitely recommend this book if you are interested in Korea!

An interesting book that gives you a glimpse of the unique folktales Korea has to offer. While it is a great book, I found myself wishing that there were more tales inside it.

I'm Korean-American with a Korean mother, and when I was little, I remember her telling me some crazy stories. They were like the fairy tales I heard in school (I grew up entirely in the US), except they had odd characters doing odd things. At least they seemed odd at the time.

In my late twenties, I was browsing through a bookstore in Berkeley that specializes in Asian subjects, and I found this book. I immediately remembered one story that really stuck-out in my memory: one about a frog who ultimately repented for lying to his mother but it was too late and her body wound up floating down a river because of his lies. Like I said, the stories seemed weird at the time :) But sure enough, the story was in the book! Right then and there, I decided to buy it and I read through it pretty quickly.

The author traveled all over Korea, noting the origin and year he recorded each story, and the result is a wonderful collection of myths, fables, and fairy tales. If you know Korean culture, you will recognize the uniquely-Korean aspects of many of the stories. If you don't know Korean culture, it may be an unusual but intriguing experience. Instead of princesses, witches, dragons, and the like - here it's filial sons, righteous magistrates, goblins, tigers, rabbits and toads.

I enjoyed the book so much, I bought copies for my brother and my mother, so we could all have these stories to read to our children (and grandchildren). I highly recommend them.

Simply the best collection of Korean folk tales ever!

book was not as I was expecting it, it was beyond old and used. I would not trust the condition of used books....
