BACKSTORY

Korea is famous for having hundreds of traditional stories and superstitions especially towards the paranormal. Korean ghost movies are famous and too many to count. Dramas often include ghosts and with that very important figures of legend such as the grim reaper. Nearly every religeon and country has its onw form of the grim reaper and all varying in looks and outlooks towards them some positive and some negative.

In Korea the grim reaper is known as 저승사자 Jeosung Saja which has many different meanings such as lion or herald or messenger but in truth it simply means reaper. The difference with this grim reaper is in apperence and his role. Many cultures view the grim reaper as evil or even ones killing peopl. The Korean reapers are known as something called a psychopomp which are creatures or deities or beings who's job it is to guide the newly deceased souls to the afterlife. Their role is not to judge or to kill a soul but simply to guide them.

Suicide reapers are those human beings that chose to end their lives by committing suicide and are then denied access into the afterlife as a puishement for their chosen action or deed. Sometimes their names and lives are erased from them so that they no longer know who they are or were and can fufill their duty with utmost care and ease. Other times their entire lives are left intact as further punishment for their actions. Normally they are not allowed to see or visit their oved ones other times they are. This can also be seen as a punishent. as they remember every detail of their lives and have to live with those memories for eternity. It is not known how long a grim reaper is in service before it is finally set free to enter the afterlife and be reincarnated in to the world.

The Grim Reaper in other countries and Korea symbolises death. In comparison to the Western Grim Reaper which is a faceless figure in a black cloak holding a scythe, the Traditional Korean folklore, don a gat a black hat worn during the Joseon era. The Grim Reapers duty is to collect the souls of those who have died, allowing them to pass on to the Afterlife. As one who guides spirits to their resting place, the Grim Reaper is shown to take his work very seriously and with solemnity. He is often introverted and quiet, composed with an air of quiet confidence and authority. He is only harsh to those souls who deserve it. he collects souls when they die, and brings them to judgment to decide to either go to Heaven or Hell, or sometimes to be reincarnated. As suicide was considered a great sin, those souls that committed suicide are denied passage to the Afterlife and were instead appointed as a Grim Reaper sometimes with their memories and lives erased and somethimes with it ntact as further punishment.

backstory

chonggak dokkaebi Korean:총각도깨비; literally Bachelor Dokkaebi:Dokkaebi known to attract humans.

Dokkaebi Korean:도깨비 are legendary creatures from Korean mythology and folklore. Dokkaebi, also known as Korean goblins are nature deities or spirits possessing extraordinary powers and abilities that are used to interact with humans, at times playing tricks on them and at times helping them. Legends describe different dokkaebi in many forms, and dokkaebi often wear hanbok. The earliest known documentation of dokkaebi is in the Silla-era tale of "Lady Dohwa and Bachelor Bihyeong" from the Memorabilia of the Three Kingdoms compiled during the Goryeo period. Dokkaebi are featured in many folk tale anthologies compiled during the Joseon period.

Characteristics:Dokkaebi are different from ghosts, called gwishin 귀신 in Korean, in that they are not formed by the death of a human being, but rather by the spiritual possession of an inanimate object such as old discarded household tools like brooms, or objects stained with human blood. The physical appearance of the dokkaebi is presented in many different ways and has varied by different time periods, but they have always been depicted as fearsome and awe inspiring. The most common depiction of them is based on ancient roof tiles with dokkaebi patterns. Different versions of the dokkaebi mythology assign different attributes to them. In some cases, they are considered harmless but never the less mischievous, usually playing pranks on people or challenging wayward travelers to a ssireum Korean wrestling match for the right to pass. Dokkaebi are extremely skilled at wrestling and cannot be beaten unless their right side is exploited. In other tales, dokkaebi only have one leg, so one should hook their leg and push them to win.

Dokkaebi fire is a glimmering light or tall blue flames that herald the appearance of dokkaebi. Dokkaebi possess magical items, such as the dokkaebi hat called the dokkaebi gamtu 도깨비 감투 which grants the wearer the ability of invisibility, and the dokkaebi magic club called the dokkaebi bangmangi 도깨비 방망이 which can summon things and act functionally as a magic wand. Dokkaebi like Buckwheat jelly, Sorghum and red bean rice cakes, mashed Sorghum and the drinks. So in dokkaebi gosa Hangul: 도깨비 고사 there are foods which Dokkaebi like

Traditional Practices: It is believed that dokkaebi have immense supernatural powers, can bring good harvests, big catches and great fortunes to humans, and are defenders against evil spirits. Depending on the region's traditional folklore, some traditional practices are held to appeal to dokkaebi to bring good luck to humans and other practices are done to chase away dokkaebi, who are thought to be the causes of bad luck that brings fires and contagious diseases.[8] In Jeju Island, the Durin-gut healing ceremony for mental illnesses is said to drive away the dokkaebi from the patient, similar to driving away the bad energy from a person.

Legends: Most Korean legends have Dokkaebi in the stories. They are about Dokkaebi playing pranks on mortals or punishing them because of their evil deeds. One of them is about an old man who lived alone in a mountain, one day a Dokkaebi visited his house. Surprised the kind old man gave the Dokkaebi an alcoholic beverage and they become friends. The Dokkaebi visited the old man often and they had long conversations together, but one day, the man took a walk by himself in the woods near the river. He discovered that his reflection looked like the Dokkaebi. He fear, and realized that he was gradually becoming that creature. The man made a plan to prevent himself from becoming a Dokkaebi and invited the creature to his house. He asked, "What are you most afraid of?" and the Dokkaebi answered, "I'm afraid of blood. What are you afraid of?" The man pretended to be frightened and said, "I'm afraid of money. That's why I live in the mountains by myself." The next day, the old man killed a cow and poured its blood all over his house. The Dokkaebi, with shock and great anger, ran away and said, "I'll be back with your greatest fear!" The next day, the Dokkaebi brought bags of money and threw it to the old man. After that, Dokkaebi never came back and the old man became the richest person in the town.

BACKSTORY

해태 Haetae Lion creature

As this is the official symbol of Seoul even in the present day since 2009 when it replaced the tiger Wangbomi. Because of this, the haetae can be found all over the city in subway stations, museums, palaces, and parks. It is also often used as a lantern in Korean festivals. As Korean folklore goes, the haetae are among the most widely represented and highly revered amongst all of the mythological beasts, and they are a common feature in popular culture. you’ll easily find statues of this creature outside numerous buildings. The creature has the body and head of a lion, with curled horns on its head. Its entire body is also covered in armor-like scales. It is believed to be a guardian that keeps evil omens at bay and also upholds justice. It also serves as a guardian that wards off natural disasters. This creature is sometimes also called Haechi. Thus, already in the times of the Joseon Dynasty, many officials were keen to have this creature embroidered onto their official gowns.

In Korean folklore, the haetae is a scaled goat-like creature that was believed to know right from wrong, and helped pass judgement on guilty and innocent parties. It may sometimes be known as haitai or haechi. It was often depicted as a muscular beast with a likeness to a lion, goat, and unicorn. Indeed, in English language references to the haetae, it is sometimes known as a “unicorn lion”. The haetae is not only prevalent in Korean mythology, but also has a place in Chinese and Japanese folklore. It is called kaichi 獬豸in Japanese mythology. In Chinese myths, though, it is known as Xiezhi and is believed to have been an aid to the ancient Minister of Law, Gao Yao. Xiezhi would punish those who were guilty of crimes by attacking them with its horn.

It’s common to encounter haetae statues through out the whole of South Korea, especially in the capital city of Seoul. In addition to passing judgement on guilt and innocence, the haetae is also known as a guardian against fires and other natural disasters, and is often used architecturally to signify this belief. Such is the significance of the haetae in Korean folklore, there are food companies, sports teams, and theme parks all known named in honor of the mythological beast.

BACKSTORY

용/룡 (미르) Yong/Ryong/Mireu (Dragons)

Whereas most dragons in European mythology are linked to the elements of fire and destruction, dragons in Korean mythology are primarily benevolent beings related to water and agriculture, often considered bringers of rain and clouds. Hence, many Korean dragons are said to have resided in rivers, lakes, oceans, or even deep mountain ponds. The symbol of the dragon has been used extensively in Korean culture, both in Korean mythology and ancient Korean art. Ancient texts sometimes mention sentient speaking dragons, capable of understanding complex emotions such as devotion, kindness, and gratitude. One particular Korean legend speaks of the great King Munmu, who on his deathbed wished to become a "Dragon of the East Sea in order to protect Korea".

The Korean dragon is in many ways very similar in appearance to other East Asian dragons such as the Chinese and Japanese dragons. It differs from the Chinese dragon in that it developed a longer beard. Very occasionally a dragon may be depicted as carrying a giant orb known as the yeouiju 여의주 the Korean name for the mythical Cintamani, in its claws or its mouth. It was said that whoever could wield the yeouiju was blessed with the abilities of omnipotence and creation at will, and that only four-toed dragons who had thumbs with which to hold the orbs were both wise and powerful enough to wield these orbs, as opposed to the lesser, three-toed dragons. As with China, the number nine is significant and auspicious in Korea, and dragons were said to have 81 scales on their backs, representing yang essence.

Korean folk mythology states that most dragons were originally imugis Korean: 이무기 Imugi, or lesser dragons, which were said to resemble gigantic serpents. There are a few different versions of Korean folklore that describe both what imugis are and how they aspire to become full-fledged dragons. Koreans thought that an imugi could become a true dragon, or yong or mireu, if it caught a Yeouiju which had fallen from heaven. Another explanation states they are hornless creatures resembling dragons who have been cursed and thus were unable to become dragons. By other accounts, an imugi is a proto-dragon which must survive one thousand years in order to become a fully fledged dragon. In either case they are said to be large, benevolent, python-like creatures that live in water or caves, and their sighting is associated with good luck.

The imugi is also called an ishimi Korean: 이시미, a miri Korean: 미리, a young-no youngno, yeongno, yeong-no Korean: 영노, a gangcheori kangcheori Korean: 강철이; Hanja: 強鐵 or kkwangcheori Korean: 꽝철이 or Kkangcheori Korean: 깡철이, a Bari Korean: 바리 a Hweryong Korean: 훼룡; Hanja: 虺龍) or an iryong (Korean: 이룡; Hanja: 螭龍.

The name Mireu reffers to river and probably comes from the word Mul (물), which means water.While the european dragons represent fire and destruction, the korean dragons are related to water, rain and even agriculture. They are often considert as bringers of rain and clouds. And of course they are usually are lucky charms. Korean dragons are in many ways very similar to those who appear in chinese and japanese mythology. Very often it is mentioned that korean dragons carry an orb with them which is called Yeouiju 여의주. Yeouiju is the korean name for the mythical Cintamani.wish fulfilling stone The interesting thing is that only four clawed dragons are able to wield those orbs. four including an extra thumb, in order to holt the orb Those four clawed dragons are higher ranked because they're blessed with the abilities of omnidence and creation at will.

BACKSTORY

Taemin is a 1000 year old Gumiho and a guardian towards the human race. In Korean Mythology theGumiho (Korean: 구미호; Hanja: 九尾狐, literally "nine-tailed fox") is a creature that appears in the folktales on East Asia and legends of Korea. Korean Gumiho shares many similarities to the Chinese huli jing and the Japanese kitsune. It can freely transform, among other things, into a beautiful man or woman often set out to seduce boys and eat their liver or heart depending on the legend. There are numerous tales in which the Gumiho appears, several of which can be found in the encyclopedic Compendium of Korean Oral Literature 한국 구비문학 대계/韓國口碑文學. The old Chinese text Classic of Mountains and Seas, the earliest record to document the nine-tailed fox mentioned that the fox with nine tails came from and lived in the country called Qingqiu 靑丘 three hundreds miles east, the term meaning green hill interpreted as the country or region of the east and was later historically used to refer to the region of Korea at least since the era during the Three Kingdoms of Korea. However, it also must be noted that the name of Gojoseon called Joseon in the record the Korean kingdom that existed along with other minor states of the Korean peninsula at the time, was separately introduced in the same record. Gumiho and other versions of the nine-tailed fox myths and folklores share similar concept. All explain fox spirits as being the result of great longevity or the accumulation of energy, said to be foxes who have lived for a thousand years, and give them the power of shapeshifting usually appearing in the guise of a woman. However, while China's huli jing and Japan's kitsune are often depicted with ambiguous moral compasses, possibly good or bad, the kumiho is almost always treated as a malignant figure who feasts on human flesh. It is unclear at which point in time Koreans began viewing the kumiho as a purely evil creature, since many ancient texts mention the benevolent kumiho assisting humans and even make mentions of wicked humans tricking kind but naïve Gumiho.

In later literature Gumiho were often depicted as bloodthirsty half fox half human creature that wandered cemeteries at night digging human hearts out from graves. The fairy tale The Fox Sister depicts a fox spirit preying on a family for their livers. However, according to Gyuwon Sahwa Gumiho is described as an auspicious fox spirit with a book in its mouth. Considering the text is thought to be written in 1675 some speculate that the modern violent image of Gumiho is influenced during the Japanese occupation in Korea. Nevertheless, foxes often contained a negative image during the Koryo Dynasty Shin Don was described as an old fox spirit due to his love for women and drink despite his being a buddhist monk suggesting two different views could have co existed in ancient Korea. Taiping Guangji claims Silla worshipped foxes as sacred beings. The most distinctive feature that separates the kumiho from its two counterparts Japanese kitsune, and Chinese huli jing is the existence of a 'yeowoo guseul' 여우구슬, literally meaning fox marble/bead which is said to consist of knowledge. According to Korean mythology the yeowoo guseul provides power to the Gumiho and knowledge and intelligence to people if they can steal and swallow one. The Gumiho can absorb humans energy with it. The method of absorbing energy with the yeowoo guseul resembles a deep kiss. A kiss using a tongue. The Gumiho sends the yeowoo guseul into people's mouths and then retakes it with their tongues. If that person swallows the yeowoo guseul, however, and then observes sky land and people each observation gives the observer preternatural knowledge. But the person fails to watch the sky in most tales so they get a special ability but not the most important one.

Most legends state that while a gumiho was capable of changing its appearance, there is still something persistently fox like about it. A foxy face a set of ears or the tell tale nine tails or a magical way of forcing its countenance changes but its nature does not. In Transformation of the Gumiho 구미호의 변신 a Gumiho transforms into the identical likeness of a bride or goom at a wedding and is only discovered when its clothes are removed. Bakh Mun su and the Gumiho 박문수와 구미호 records an encounter that Pak Munsu has with a girl living alone in the woods that has a foxy appearance. In The Maiden who Discovered a Gumiho through a Chinese Poem 한시로 구미호를 알아낸 처녀 the Gumiho is ultimately revealed when a hunting dog catches the scent of a fox and attacks. Although they have the ability to change forms, the true identity of a kumiho was said to be zealously guarded by the kumiho themselves. Some tales say that if a kumiho abstains from killing and eating humans for a thousand days it can become human. Much like changelings, werewolves or vampires in Western lore, there are always variations on the myth depending on the liberties that each story takes with the legend. One version of the mythology, however, holds that with enough will, a kumiho could further ascend from its yogoe spirit state, become permanently human and lose its evil character. Explanations of how this could be achieved vary, but sometimes include aspects such as refraining from killing or tasting meat for a thousand days or obtaining a cintamani and making sure that the Yeoiju saw the full moon at least every month during the ordeal. Unlike Yeoiju wielding dragons Gumiho were not thought to be capable of omnipotence or creation at will since they were lesser creatures.
