The late Dr. Zo Zayong (Emille Museum) did a lot of research and most likely writing (in Korean) on Tokkebi, as well as collected and created a lot of images. He had an exhibition of his work at the GAMMA art gallery. His work, and that of his collaborator, hopefully is being conserved at the now closed Samshin Hoegwan near Songrisan.

Subject: [KS] Korean Ghost Stories

Dear List Members,

I would like your assistance in identifying some Korean (either classical or modern) "ghost" stories/tales in either Korean or English.  Any kind of "ghost" stories would be appreciated--whether of the spirit, kwishin, Tokkebi, human or animal type.  Bibliographical information would be greatly appreciated, if known.

Related to the first query, I'm also interested in scholarly works that deal with emotions related to "fear" provoked by "ghosts" in Korea.

Thank you in advance for your assistance,
Jina Kim
