Dear all,
A friend of mine in Japanese history is seeking information regarding 
fireflies in Korean culture.

What kind of associations do fireflies have in Korean folk belief? 
Are they in any way regarded as spirits of the dead?  I would be 
grateful if you could provide some information on this topic.

Thank you,
Namhee Lee
