Dear KS list members:
"Hmmm, what is a tokkaebi," I wondered after reading Ms. Kim's post and the
various replies. I was going to ask for a brief rundown, but decided to do
a bit of digging.
"Ah, *that's* a tokkaebi," I thought, upon discovering that a familiar
architectural design motif features the creature, as shown in pictures here
(for anyone else who was wondering):
And my curiosity was further satisfied by this article from a package tour
company's website (don't know if that's the original source for the article
or not, as there is no citation):
