38A-Korean Literature (Hong Gildong): Crossing the Threshold

Hong Gildong has been called the Korean Robin Hood, but really oversimplifies the story. It is both an awesome adventure tale with dragons, magic, assassins, demons, bandits, and betrayal, and a complex human drama, where one young man must find and understand his place in the world. It's both action-packed, and heartbreaking. The titular character, Gildong, was born a second-class citizen, and he was determined to make a way for himself in a world that kept pushing him down, even if that meant living outside the law. This is his story.

The creature this time is the saalah, and they are what happens when a mommy genie and a daddy human (or the other way around) love each other very much.

    The week/day this episode released, I had been talking to my friend about going to Korea! I want to go there next year for about a year to teach English but I told her I’m really nervous because I don’t know a lot about its culture. Then this little gem drops into my lap! Thank you, Jason!
