350: Korean folklore: Ghosts and Goblins

Myths and Legends

Jan 3 2024 • 42 mins

Three(ish) stories from the Korean peninsula about ghosts and goblins. Kind of. Some are actual ghosts and goblins (도깨비). Some are the ghosts of happier times and the lives we thought we wanted. Some goblins literally beat us up when they cheat at board games. There's a lot to learn this week.

The creature is the Kting Voar, a creature that definitely does not exist, but not for lack of being extremely normal and boring.
