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!
