Hello, Mercedes -- welcome to our humble list.

The text that you need to start with is certainly Dr
Grayson's "Myths and Legends from Korea: An Annotated 
Compendium of Ancient and Modern Materials"

I see that they're charging a ridiculous price for it,
as it's now become rare, but you might be able to find
a used one or some other way -- we can hope that this
classic standard-setter will soon be re-issued as an
affordable paperback!

Sincere Regards,
